How depressing that they feel trying a level 6 paper is a good idea.
There are sooo many better ways of enriching their diet and this is is least educationally desirable.
All the research shows acceleration does not work in the best interest of children.
I get fed up of seeing this argument framed in terms which are hard to argue with - i.e. 'it is a good thing that children want to challenge themselves [by doing more of the same narrow stuff and covering parts of the secondary school curriculum, but not enough to impress secondary teachers or give them any useful skills they wouldn't have got by the end of Y9 anyway]'. I am almost tired of saying that it is a big world out there and challenging oneself in reading comprehension at the age of ten probably doesn't feature highly on the list of skills worth pursuing when you have a bit of time and energy on your hands. Bring back art, music, drama, geography, languages, history, woodwork, nature study, cookery, citizenship, RE... which have all been squeezed so far from the primary curriculum that there aren't any pips left to come out.
