Hi - advise needed!
With DS having got into GS, how do we stop him resting on his laurels for the SATS?
He told me the other day that it doesn't matter how he does as he has got a place at GS and now in the Mocks (second lot so far this school year) that he did last week he has dropped 2 levels in his maths which is usually his strongest subject (although he did go up in his English
). He has gone from a 5B to a 4A.
I asked him if the teacher went through the paper so he could see where he had gone wrong and he said yes. It was mostly silly mistakes rather than a lack of understanding or knowledge. I thought we had sorted out the silly mistake making but obviously not
! DS just shrugged it off as having a bad day
We have stopped with extra maths work he was doing at home in favour of getting him to read more but I am now wondering whether he needs to be doing more?
Has anyone else had this problem????
