Mental maths books

Discussion in 'Primary' started by missh27, May 2, 2012.

  1. I am moving from nursery to year 5 next year and after a discussion with the deputy head today, I am going to get some mental maths books.

    I have found some on amazon, and wanted opinions on these if people have used them.

    If you don't recommend these, then what other mental maths books would be useful for Year 5

    Thanks

    I prefer these, the ones you mention are okish, but too much trendiness and not enough maths for my liking.

    Scroll down to the mental maths bit. The books are photocopiable and look just like sats papers. You can get the CD versions and pdf ones as well. The books are levelled, so year 5 is at NC level 3/4. The actual sheets just say 'book 3' or 'book 4' so no embarrassment or showing off about using the year above or below.
     
  5. I love these topical resources mental maths - so do my maths group

    Have you tried the Andrew Brodie mental maths books? They come with a cd so the children can practise for speed too.

  7. I do hope you are not expected to buy them with your own money and if you do make sure that you claim the cost back!! What did the previous Year 5 teacher use? Are they not available?
    What a huge jump you are making from Nursery to Year 5! Hope it goes well!
