How are we all doing?! I can't believe how soon it is.
We've done most of the past CSSE papers now, some VR and NVR (though not much really) and are trying to write creatively about a range of banal things!! DD's vocabulary is lacking though and she finds some of the comprehension questions hard. She can also write a decent piece of description about eg a favourite food (after some input),but then a few weeks later, when asked to do it again, will write random gibberish!
How is everyone else?! I gave her some code questions to do yesterday and she was v slow and found them tricky. DS was so quick with these at the end but I don't even know if it's a waste of time spending more time going through with her as there weren't in any in the familiarisation papers?!!
Don't want to panic you but it's only 5 weeks until 11+ and 4 weeks until CCHS exam (not six weeks!!!)
In terms of vocabulary there is a list of good words to learn on one of the other forums (English I think). We are basically now just learning them, their meanings, synonyms and antonyms as it's the thing that my daughter is finding difficult. Thankfully her maths, verbal and non verbal, creative writing, Cloze and comprehension are spot on at the moment.
