Just been to Smiths today and bought the 10-11 Bond- verbal and non verbal, the GL multiple choice verbal and non verbal, also, a spellings and mental maths quickie book.
There were no pack 1 of the GL books so we wont be starting those just yet, I bought the pack 2 and am looking out for the pack 1 in Leeds tomorrow at the bigger Smiths.
Am a little shocked that it came to over £40 for just a few books, this really is a big money making plan for someone isn't it? Still cheaper than a tutor and with me new bribery plan, prep has been going well so far!
Anyhoo, next prep day is Friday(tomorrow), I have prepared DS by letting him know that these are all at a higher level and that he may find them a struggle to begin with, he is perfectly OK with this and is ready to step it up. Phew!
My question is this, all the books seem to be just test papers, is there anything I should be looking out for that I can use to help teach DS about all the different types of questions?
I was planning on just taking a question at a time and just explaining how we would go about answering it trying to teach him any "patterns" and hints to help solve the questions.
Any tips? We are in West Yorkshire, taking the North Yorkshire test.
