Just two more months to go for Reading Grammar exam. My son seems to have lost the interest
Had a similar problem two years ago
. Starting back at school was tiring so we stopped extra work for about ten days, then did shorter fun sessions focusing on problem topics, also did some easy stuff to boost confidence.
Keep the boy simmering, don't turn up the heat or he might boil over.
We had several peaks and troughs (tears & tantrums) so decided to keep ticking over and focus on doing his best on the day.
We talked a lot about if it's hard on the day keep going everyone will find it hard, it is a tough day with three papers. We also worked on exam technique, not wasting to much time on difficult questions, eliminate wrong answers and go for a 50/50 guess. We talked about being nervous, a normal reaction and channelling the nervous energy into work. Find out what works for your son so on the day he does his best, that's all you can ask and hope for.
I am taking my year four boy to the open evening tonight to show him the science labs. as part of his brain washing, sorry motivation.
Good luck and best wishes.
