Giveaway: Maths Fun For Cool Kids Workbook

Maths Fun For Cool Kids

What better timing to run another giveaway on Sim’s Life and add some cheer into an utterly miserable week! If anyone locates the Sun, please inform it that it needs to shift over to the North West! Has anyone else had their heating on this week, or is it just me?

Anyway, I digress as always! Back to the post!

You may well have entered the previous giveaway to win a copy of the Revision Fun For Clever Kids workbook, a revision book aimed at Year 5 aged children that aids SATs and 11+ exam preparation. There really were some fantastic tips for exam preparation in the entries, with the main emphasis being on ‘don’t panic… and take your time!’.

Exams can seem like a daunting prospect to undertake, at any age! However, as adults we all know that we need to prepare – establishing this mindset in children will certainly stand them in better stead!

Whilst the Revision Fun For Clever Kids workbook from Jumping Yak features a range of topics from English, Maths and beyond, I have the great delight of introducing you to the newly published ‘Maths Fun For Cool Kids’, an entire workbook dedicated to Maths!

Maths Fun For Cool Kids

Katie Knapman and Edward Matthews have been working hard, compiling a new dedicated subject revision book that will help Year 5 aged children concentrate on a whole host of fun Maths problems.

That’s right, you did read that correctly! ‘FUN‘ Maths problems!

Revision should not be a chore, with Jumping Yak taking that on board and in turn publishing revision workbooks that make learning fun, easy to understand and more importantly, engaging! The use of colours and images make the questions and challenges easier to comprehend… and finish! We are huge fans of the range and if anything they also keep my mind ticking over – don’t worry, answers are in the back of the revision book if required!

With the Summer holidays approaching quickly, a 6 week break from school is a dream come true for children. However, the Jumping Yak workbooks are a great idea to ensure there isn’t a huge shock when your child moves into the next year come September. A couple of pages during the week and Maths will still be fresh in your child’s mind without them even realising!

Priced at a very reasonable £8.99, the Maths Fun For Cool Kids workbook can be purchased directly from Jumping Yak, alongside the full range.

To find out more behind Katie Knapman, the author behind the workbook, check out BBC2’s Family Brain Games with Dara O’Brien. Starting on Monday 17th June, every night until Thursday for two weeks at 8pm, watch as the UK’s cleverest families, including Katie’s family take part in contests to see which family will be crowned the Ultimate Champions.

I loved when there were thunderstorms or heavy rain, one of my teachers read books to us and didn’t flinch if someone needed to hide under the desk or cover their ears. It really helped a class of 5/6 year olds, and as an adult, I now appreciate her calm kindness.

Walking home from school with my best friend. We would take it in turns which home we went to :- Mine or hers, and we would share items /foodstuff that we had made in cookery class. We were in different cookery classes. After spending time together after school at one of our homes, returned to own home. We had fun, chats, spent time with each other’s family, and built up a great bond.

My fondest memory was Scottish Dancing lessons, we were in groups of fours and it was all girls: the boys were in a different building, It was a poor area, although I didn’t realise that at the time. but for half an hour we were proper young ladies. Credit to the teachers, By the way, this was in the 50’s.
