Drawing from the teaching for mastery approach
and following our schemes of learning, the sheets cover each small step from Years 1 to 11. They are full of the models and representations you’d expect to see to help pupils understand the meaning of each concept and make it memorable.
As teachers ourselves, we know first-hand how time-consuming it is to download and print out separate worksheets to use in the classroom, or worse, cutting and sticking them into books to make it easier for pupils as they progress through a scheme.
Recently, to simplify life for countless teachers and reduce their workload we introduced printed workbooks as a more succinct, highly-effective classroom resource with minimum admin required. Printed write-in workbooks are used frequently in some of the highest performing schools across the UK and wider.
Each of our books provides the same questions as our worksheets and follows an identical journey from one concept to the next, but are much simpler to use in schools than separate sheets, both time-consuming to manage and easier to damage or misplace.
Printed in full colour, our A4 write-in workbooks are grouped into school years, each filled with tasks relating to a concept covered during a term. Schools can purchase workbooks individually or in bundles, with our annual option providing the best value.
While teachers benefit from workbooks saving on their workload, the greatest feedback is from pupils who find having the content organised and in one place helps their understanding. They love feeling that the book is their own! Teachers can use their book alongside an exercise book where pupils can still make notes and record their thinking,
The content reflects topics shown in our online videos (already available up to Year 9 and being released gradually throughout the academic year 2021/22 for Years 10 and 11).
Answer books are also made available to teachers to simplify the marking process.

Hassle-free - Removes the time teachers spend on printing, cutting and sticking!
Proven – Maths tasks sync with research-led mastery-based schemes of learning
Consistent - Supports video content used by teachers in class and pupils learning from home
An increasing number of UK schools are now using our printed worksheets for learning maths. Here’s what one maths lead had to say about her school’s experience buying this useful resource:
“We started using your workbooks recently for years 7 to 10, making our own version the previous year. It’s so much easier now having everything in one place, with no more printing and gluing to do – and much cheaper too.
“Students use the books in pairs and independently, some also taking them home for extra catch up work. The questions are great, and really delve into a topic and encourage students to look at concepts from different angles. Key to us is how a video supports each small step, it's really helpful for teaching and learning.
“The workbooks are comprehensive, convenient and wide-ranging. I would recommend to colleagues when teaching a scheme and also to parents when used alongside a video. We absolutely love them, and we’re really pleased you are producing them.”
