A couple of things to note... 

- If you are using CGP comprehension books at home the answers are now available by clicking the link above.

- If you are working on the '10 minute Test' books at home please be reassured that when we use these at school, the children are given longer than 10 minutes to complete them and we would encourage parents at home to do the same.
