Hello,

My daughter is going to start year 4 in September and we're hoping to try for AGGS and SGS. What would you wse folk advise we be doing over the summer (other than playing, reading books and having fun and ice cream, of course!!!!)

Just want to do something little and often. Thanks so much in advance.

I'd suggest

Playing, reading books and having fun, and ice cream.

She is still quite young. Beginning of year 4 is still too early to start.

I agree Tinkers, the end of year 3 beginning of 4 is really early and you don't want to risk burn out and her getting bored of it all. She will be working hard next summer so let her rest and relax for this one!

I agree too young to start papers etc but never too young to ensure the basics are in place. I would advise you concentrate on getting times tables covered, you can find websites that print 100 time tables sums. Get her to do one a day and time her, hopefully she will get faster each day. We did this with my son and by end of year 3 could do 100 times tables in 59 seconds - CEM tests speed and accuracy. Lots of reading ensuring she understands the vocab and doesn't just skim over the words she doesn't know. You could even start her on bond books age 7-8. A little and often is the way to go. Hope this helps.
