Hi there, long time since I asked about kumon. Anyway we decided against it for DD, she was/is doing so well we could achieve lots of similar activities at home and spent the pennies we would have spent on kumon on Family days out
So to my next topic, mixed year groups, my DD, 9 in november, is in quite a small school and she has started Year four, in a mixed year class ( some able Year 3s, all of year 4s, small group of 12, and some year 5s, ) I shall be looking at some DIY mentoring next Easter onwards as think DD would be suitable to sit the 11+ for the grammer school. She is on the YG&T register, and is over acheiveing compared to her peers, she is happy content and i never push, infact can be a little lazy, she just seems to enjoy school and thus far has had excellent reports. I am wondering though whether this mixed group is going to hold her back or shall it actually benefit her, and would love to hear anyone's experiences of mixed year groups, and if has has any effect either way on ones child.
