He is in Y5 and a state school.
I did wonder if it was an idle threat but we don't need the teachers adding pressure re 11+.
Unfortunately he will have the same lit teacher through Y6 and he is already dreading it.
He recently said "I think I should stop trying so hard then I will be moved down a group and the work I do will look really good."
I told him that the answer is to do work way above the level the teacher wants so that she will pick on someone else and I would help him achieve this.
Poor thing has always had to work harder than the average as he is dyslexic and the school do nothing to help as they say "he is coping in top sets".
Sorry for the rant - just needed to let of steam.
