My 2.7 year old is having her 3+ test for the Abbey in Reading soon. Not sure what to expect. What do 3+ selection processes usually involve?

there's a thread called 3+ 4+ 5+ 7+ support on primary education with more info. I think it's a bit hit and miss, all the schools I know that take in at 3 have a bit of a chucking out process at 7. I would imagine knowing shapes, colours, maybe being able to recognise the odd letter, sitting still, not being too shy.

I've looked at that thread but it mainly seems to be 4+ and above - I guess there aren't that many places with a 3+ and all of them have different processes so it's hard to generalise.

I'm not sure she'll get in unless they ask her about dinosaurs - she is obsessed with them and can recognise lots of different types of dinosaur but she's not so great at displaying knowledge or ability about anything else...
