The Worded Problems Puzzles Compendium has been created in easy to print, pdf format and costs only £10 for over forty puzzles. The questions have all been designed by an outstanding, award-winning Year Six teacher who understands what makes children motivated learners.

What child wouldn’t love to help Brunel launch SS Great Eastern, plan a feast for Henry VIII or mend a Spitfire’s canopy whilst they practise their worded problem skills?!  


But how are these puzzles going to help your child pass their SATs tests? Simple – all the puzzles have been designed to mirror the question types that appear in SATs papers.  Also, the puzzles all have 3 levels of differentiation. No matter how good your child is at calculation they will find work that is at the correct level.

Because all of the puzzles in the Worded Problems Puzzles Compendium have distinct answers, your child will be desperate to solve them. This is amazing for creating independent learners – if they haven’t found the answer they will want to find their own mistakes so that they can complete the puzzle!
