Reasoning and Problem Solving Questions Collection - KS1 and KS2

author avatar

Created by

These booklets each contain over 40 reasoning and problem solving questions suitable for KS1, KS2 and KS3 classes. These are the questions that we have been putting out each day in March 2016 on Twitter in the run up to SATS.

The answers are provided with some simple notes at the back of the booklet and for some problems supplementary questions and variation has been provided.

We hope to release more questions like this over the course of next year including some open ended problems. Please keep a look out for our work. If you have not seen our schemes and assessments for primary then please take a look at our website

As always we welcome any feedback on the work we are doing and the materials that we are releasing.
Thank you for taking an interest in our work.

    I spent quiet some searching for the real life problems to explain my kid why we need to do HCF and LCM. I got this here and I am very happy.

    I can't wait to see how the children of different abilities share their thinking to solve these reasoning challenges.
