The Schofield & Sims workbooks are great! My children enjoy working through them the way I used to when I was young.
They can easily work through the books themselves to practice what they have learnt and there's usually things to colour along the way. They also each have a reading record book https://www.schofieldandsims.co.uk/product/469/my-reading-record-key-stage-1
which they use to keep track of the books they have read, how many pages they read and who they read to. These books also have phonics checklists in the back to test the letters/sounds they know and keep a record.
Not only do they have English, Maths & Science workbooks, which are very reasonably priced, with a discount for tutors/home educators, but they also have workbooks focussing on the different topics within Maths such as the new series on Fractions.
'Fractions, decimals and percentages are frequent areas of difficulty for children. A major reason they struggle with them is the variety of contexts and representations in which they appear – for example, as areas, as sets, on a number line and in relation to measurements. Cue Schofield & Sims Fractions, Decimals and Percentages, a structured whole-school programme designed to explore these topics in all their different guises, so that pupils develop a deep, secure and adaptable understanding of them.
Featuring six pupil books and six accompanying teacher's guides - one for each primary school year - Fractions, Decimals and Percentages provides you with everything you need to teach the National Curriculum requirements for this challenging area of maths. What's more, it embraces all the principles of mastery, allowing you to use it as part of a whole-school mastery approach to teaching mathematics. To find out more about this exciting new resource head over to our blog or read an in-depth review of the series by Teach Primary's John Dabell.'
