I notice someone has already asked this question on this forum but it got no response, so I hope someone will reply this time!
My DD is 8 and in Yr 4. Im currently not doing much in the way of practise papers apart from the Bond ones for her age group (the 8-9 set in Maths, English and VR). I realise I will need to order Nfer papers nearer the time, but feel its far too soon for that - Im mainly working on building vocab, encouraging reading and working on some VR skills.
Im quite keen for her to try some of the computer based learning aids, as with most kids, things seem more fun if it involves a keyboard rather than a pencil! Im not sure which (if any) of the downloads or CDs available are aimed at her age group. Her skill level isnt bad, but I certainly dont want to frighten her off with anything too hard, too soon!
I tried the practise free download verbal reasoning paper myself and found it quite hard (even got 1 wrong
) - compared to what level she is at now. Im assuming that would be aimed at an older child?
Are there any suitable programs for a Yr 4 child (who is just beginning to work at level 4 for most subjects).
We are in Essex and aiming for Westcliff High School for Girls.
Thanks if you can help.
