Hi, newbie here
My dd is in year 3 at the moment and I am starting to think about the 11+. This site is great as it is giving me lots of thoughts. I understand that pressure is not the thing at this point, but trying to up the standard of her reading (getting her away from the Rainbow Fairy books!), Scrabble, Boggle etc. Her SATs for KS1 were good for her age, although not exceptional - she is currently a 3a in reading and a 3b in maths if that helps.
My queries are: do I need to find a tutor now and put her name on a waiting list? When should I start her on tutoring if we have this much time? How often should children be tutored formally in addition to home help - a lesson a week?
I have bought the 8-9 age bond books for Maths and English and intend to work on those gradually with her, along with Scrabble etc. and reading her books myself like Anne of Green Gables and other recommendations on here that she might not necessarily read herself yet!! Does that sound good?
Many thanks for all your help and advice.
