Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning

Verbal and non-verbal reasoning tests are used in secondary school selection, and in some schools they are also part of CATs at the beginning of Year 7. Reasoning skills are a form of critical thinking; the tests are designed to assess a child's ability with words, numbers, shapes and space. While these skills can be developed and practised, they are non curriculum-based skills, so aren't taught as part of KS2. 

 

Many practice books are widely available from book sellers. Below are some links to sample papers.
