Edition: Paperback
Price: £3.71

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic teacher resource as well as for parents, 9 Jan. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is fab!!! As a parent I don't need it yet but as an English teacher this is perfect for sharing with my class. It covers everything on the course and gives students regular opportunities to develop their skills in preparation for their final exams.

CGP guides are great and I like showing then to students.


10-Minute Tests for 11+ Verbal Reasoning (Ages 10-11)
10-Minute Tests for 11+ Verbal Reasoning (Ages 10-11)
by CGP Books
Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Great range of tests but not CEM test, 9 Jan. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A fantastic book that covers all skills needed in verbal reasoning for the 11+ tests except the skills for the CEM (Durham University) test. Verbal reasoning is simply puzzles with words and this book provides 37 x 10 minute tests. There's answers included too. The book is smaller than A4 so doesn't look oppressive.

I'm a secondary teacher in a special BESD school and these are perfect literacy activities for my tutor group who have literacy and numeracy sessions together as a mixed group.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice quality, 8 Jan. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This range of stationery is beautiful. I've given this 4 stars as I think this doesn't look great enough to be £4 for a6 but it's still nice. The colour is gender neutral and the ring binder keeps pages flat after use. Secure elastic band on the side.

5.0 out of 5 stars A little goes a long way, 7 Jan. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A fantastic size product that feels great to use. You don't need a lot of the product and it did well up against waterproof mascara. It smells lovely and a little went a long way. Really liked this.

4.0 out of 5 stars 2 coats needed as bit watery, 6 Jan. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Needed two coats for coverage as went on very pale. The top coat gave it a little shine and was necessary with this colour. The brush was only just okay. I like the idea of the product but looking forward to trying another colour in it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive overview of the new course for GCSE English Literature and Language, 3 Jan. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I love working with CGP material and this book is no exception. I'm a teacher in a school undecided which grade 9-1 exam board we're going to follow for GCSE English Language and Literature so this book was good for to help inform my choices. I don't need CGP material as a parent yet as my biggest is only in Year Two (although there are relevant books available) so this review is from my teaching perspective.

There are 12 sections in this book and every one worthwhile. One section covers the basic of the exams such as using examples and how to develop extended writing. There are then 3 sections focusing on the language paper with a section on different reading techniques and then writing. A further six sections cover literature: prose and drama together, prose and drama separately, poetry including the anthology and unseen poetry. Then there's a section on spelling, punctuation and grammar and finally one on speaking. A very comprehensive guide. You can also get the workbook to accompany the revision guide New GCSE English Language and Literature Workbook - for the Grade 9-1 Courses (includes Answers).

I like this if you don't know which specific board your school is working with but it also provides a good comprehensive overview of what's contained in these two subjects using CGP's colourful approach. Well worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic guide as usual, 3 Jan. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I love working with CGP material and this book is no exception. I'm a teacher in a school undecided which grade 9-1 exam board we're going to follow for GCSE English Language and Literature so this book was good for to help inform my choices. I don't need CGP material as a parent yet as my biggest is only in Year Two (although there are relevant books available) so this review is from my teaching perspective.

The workbook is split into six sections. The first covers exam basics such as spelling, punctuation and grammar; how to write well; writing extended responses and how to plan. The second, third and fourth sections relate to reading - understanding texts, language and structure; writing - creative and non-fiction. Section five has five sample exam questions from Paper 1 and Paper 2 along with sample answers and a mark scheme. Finally section six is a practice exam paper.

It is clear, well structured and supportive of any student within the 9-1 spectrum. Due to the volume of text those students who have reading difficulties may require additional support. This book links well with New GCSE English Language AQA Revision Guide - for the Grade 9-1 Course and should you not know which exam board you're following then they also do a generic workbook and revision guide for GCSE English Language & Literature.

Well worth the £5.95 retail price

5.0 out of 5 stars Fab colour, 1 Jan. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Loved it on short nails. I usually get polish on my skin with having short nails but this brush worked well being small.

After first coat it would've done but I applied a second and had a lovely colour. Not too glossy but not matte either.

I loved how easy it went on, sort of like pouring water. Dried in a few minutes. I've added 2 photos as well.

I'd buy this polish and I'm pleased I was able to review it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Small and good for hands beginning to learn to hold, 1 Jan. 2016
Perfect to tuck in your changing bag so you've always got a toy. All it does is move kegs with a click and same with head. Ears crinkle and each foot has a different texture. It's great for little ones who are beginning to hold things.

My son is 7 months old and likes it but there's not the visual and auditory stimulation he likes yet I've seen him hold it when he's tired. I think this would have been great as he approached 5 months old. So still getting use out of it but better for when they first begin to hold things.

5.0 out of 5 stars 7 month old loves it, 1 Jan. 2016
This review is from: Lamaze Cow Chorus (Baby Product)
a hit with 7 month old son who can manage to make it play on its own. Has Lamaze trade mark ribbons and bits to hold, chew and cuddle. The bell unit is hard plastic but as it's tucked under cows neck he can't clunk himself.

He's had it in his cot on night time mode and he likes it. As his mam I like it too. Good value for money.
