Hi GP Mum!
I am an 11+ tutor in the Sevenoaks area (and also have DD in Yr 2 and DS in R). I know I am doing myself out of work writing this
but I would honestly say if you are thinking of going down the tutoring route, then don't even think about it until they the start of Yr 5. As Scarlett says, the last thing you want to do is to turn them off or make them anxious before then. There are lots of things you can do with them now to encourage them, like play games of scrabble, bingo, boggle (either online or with the family - I always find that learning whilst having fun is always preferable!), anything fun really that helps them to learn, sharpens their mental skills etc. Also it helps a great deal to encourage them to read, perhaps books outside of their usual comfort zone to develop vocabularly required for the VR test. I know the local libraries are running their fantastic Summer Reading Challenge (I believe it starts this week) to encourage children to visit their local library. I hope some of this advice helps!!
