Very impressive that the teachers suggested he should be challenged more. Usually it is the other way around with parents keen to have their students challenged. DG
Yes, I was all laidback about it all; I did think DC was doing well in Year 1, but I thought all the other children must be performing at his level too. ( In this school, you never get to find out how the other children are doing, all results are kept tightly secret from others). When DC reached Year 2, we still thought DC was just averagely bright and was very sure that most of the other children were the same level. Then the Y2 teacher told / asked us by the end of first or second term " you do know he is very, very bright don't you?" Lol, She proceeded to explain and said we should prepare him for the Grammars.
I didn't even know he is and has been in the school's G & T list until year 4!
With his current situation with the 11+, I think he is just averagely bright after all. Well, will just have a go and see what can be done in the next 6 - 8 weeks. Any advice would be greatly appreciated though.
