I am at my wits end! My son is incredibly slow, he has no sense of urgency when it comes to completing his work/tests. I get so frustrated because he's got the knowledge. If he doesn't get a high enough mark to get into a grammar school, it will be purely because of his speed. Some days I feel like giving up, but he is insisting he wants to do it and is desperate to go to grammar school.
He doesn't have a tutor, we are DIYing. Any tips on how to improve speed will be gratefully received!
I have the same problem with dd, if I leave her to it she takes an age to complete a sheet, if I stand over her and watch her do it literally she is really fast! Totally infuriating. Probably a bit early but is it worth giving him a mock in the subject he is best at? They are all time pressured, I stand over dd and tell her when she has half the time left then 10 and 5 minutes left. I think that gave her an idea of how fast she had to be and how much time she was wasting.
Keep with it, I'm sure he will realise
