“I would definitely recommend them. The use of the vocabulary was so obvious from really early on. You just go around the room and you go ‘Ah! I can hear you talking about place value’, talking about all that reasoning that they need for the end of KS2 assessments and practising it all the time. It’s the oral rehearsal before they have to then write anything down.”
