Don't know how much more of this I can take
. DS is bright, always top group in everything, loves maths and hates English. He is year 5, June born, and at 4c English, 4b Maths and reading age of 12. We are in competitive area, but not highly competitive like Bucks from what I understand as I realise his SATS scores would mean he didn't have much of a chance in other areas of UK.
If I left him on his own to do comprehension homework his answers are dreadful, eg Why did Aunt Jane feel that way? Answer: because she was sad
Which she wasn't, plus that is the answers and punctuation used. He just can't be bothered - just wants to do things as quickly as possible to get away from work.
He has had some tutoring and just started a new tutor this week whom gave him a standardised score of 111. He is mainly going to do VR with him which leaves me with Maths and English.
I try and give him a couple of pages of Nfer papers through the week as he doesn't get homework - this should take about 15mins - however, he sulks, cries, says he can't do it... gets me super stressed out... and generally causes so much upset in the house. This evening score was 4/16
I really think *** it, I can't do this anymore. I am working and studying for a degree too and the 11 plus stress is too much for me...
Feel like packing it all in.........
