    "I am a tutor for 7+, 8+ and 11+ exams. These printable workbooks are ideal preparation for students studying for 7+, 8+ or 11+ exams with a story writing element. The children that I have used them with have given very positive feedback. The checklist provides an accurate exam mark scheme but is delivered in a child friendly way so children can take ownership of their work. Dozens of curated vocabulary words are provide for each story prompt."
