My eldest daughter didn't do great in her 11 plus, other kids in her class who do nothing but watch telly did far better, I think in hindsite that telly is actually good for your vocab. You might think that I'm not being serious, but am.
How is doing a little practice with her every week stopping her from being a child? Your's is a comment I hear often here from parents whose DC have failed the 11+, or are a little jealous of those whose children are at grammar school?
-little and often. -when she is working on a question ,get her make up her own one for you.she will start thinking like the examiner -start with questions that are too easy and build up.don't worry about speed to begin with - read lots to build up vocabulary.
Hi, my new year's resolution this year is to help my daughter prepare for the 11+ exam. But I don't want to hire a tutor due to the cost. Are there any mums out there who have done this and want to share some tips please?
I've found some good weblinks that I wanted to share: www.elevenplusexams.co.uk - lots of material on this website. www.elevenplussucess.webs.com - material is designed to help parents help their child which is nice.
My daugther is in year 4, which is a bit early, but the websites suggest starting prep at this point.
