"Our daughter had a reached a barrier in verbal reasoning, she couldn't get beyond 75% in tests at home. We'd done our best using books and papers but it was clear that she just didn't have a wide enough vocabulary. The course helped her to focus on vocabulary, it was hard work but effective."
"This provides a really good amount of vocabulary work and we liked the fact that it is organised to actually help children learn rather than just being a series of tests."
This is our shortest vocabulary course. It is intensive and we have tried to pack as much into it as we can so it represents really good value. See the preview for a good idea of what’s included.

- This course is fully planned with revision built in to ensure children see words with the frequency that allows learning to happen

- The work covers the following… Words from past papers, synonyms, opposites (antonyms), homographs, homophones, commonly misspelt words, very difficult opposites, revision you can see more detail in the preview.
