Transfer Test Preparation for Primary 5/6 Pupils

The Road to the Transfer Test Maths Skills is a comprehensive Transfer Test preparation resource for Primary 5 and 6.

The focus of this 40 page booklet is on maths problem solving.  Each maths topic is broken down into two parts –

  1. What I need to know – children have the opportunity to practise the facts and learn how to master the maths.
  2. Problem solving questions based on the types of questions children might face in the transfer test at just the right level for their age.  The topics and problem solving questions are designed to help children in the last term of P5 and the beginning of P6 with the aim to build confidence in this essential skill.
