Having just been through year 6, and as I am a governor so I have heard all the talk about new National Curriculum levels etc, I have been wondering whether it will have a knock on effect on 11+.
So, for example, if work that used to be standard in year 6 is now done in year 5, does that mean that 11+ will begin to have more in it of a higher level, in order to distinguish the brighter kids?
On the other hand, it appears to be that the schools are much less likely to push a child ahead into next year's curriculum, but rather they will extend them sideways to gather depth rather than introduce the next level.
Anyone else got any thoughts on this?
I am curious, as I DIYed my ds and dd, and now I am helping my friend's dd, as mum's English is poor, and I have another younger dd too. It occurred to me that the level I pitched it at for my dd may no longer be right.
