Love it

Absolutely love this pack. The graphics are engaging and the information so helpful. Worksheets are great to use for homework and support the children’s learning.

This is a fantastic addition (if you will pardon the pun!) to the Maths packs. So many children are afraid of subtraction and this pack gives many varied ways to practise through sums, quizzes, activities and games. The range of numbers used allows for differentiation within a class group or for use across a multi composite class. Many activities are suitable for use as homework as well as class activities, which saves many hours of reinventing the wheel! Thankyou!

I am very happy to see the Subtraction Pack. Now we have the complete set for all four operations. The Pack is beautifully made, with a fine selection of activities for all ages and abilities. It's a very good match for the Addition Pack. I particularly like the Money Problems and the Challenge Cards, and of course the Guide is, as always, essential reading. Thank you, Mark and Helen!
