You're right; this year's 11+ didn't seem to contain much Maths compared to English.
I thought the year before was the other way round - and had more Maths in it?
Maybe it will just change each year - I hope it doesn't alternate as my ds is good at maths, but never reads, apart from school books.
I know all about the problems with computers; we have time limits set. My ds is up at 5 every morning (and always has been), making things (usually involving a mess with string, sellotape etc). He does football and chess after school, and often plays football after school (that will change when it gets dark). After that he has an hour of computer time. He's in bed by 7 and falls straight asleep. He watches very little tv as it is "boring". He is just not interested in reading and I've tried everything.
He is mostly too busy doing things or too tired from being up early.
Given the chance, he would be on the computer most of the time. Weekends are about homework.
However, he is doing well at school - and he is only 8 - year 4.
Yamin151, he has plenty of access to books (he's the youngest of four) but he is just not interested and too tired most of the time. I am like you, I read in bed, I actually don't watch much tv, but use the computer too much as well, so who am I to talk.
I think you are right and the 11+ is bad for those who are only good at Maths. I do feel this year's paper was mostly English.
