DS is almost 10 and doing well in school - Level 5A for maths 5c for literacy but much better at reading than writing.
CAT scores 128 VR 141NVR
We have spent a few weeks going through different types of questions and he gets anything with codes or maths pretty well and has a good grasp of the other types. We have done a few papers but he is a very reluctant/resistant to keep practicising past papers now he knows what he is doing. I wondered whether it is worth backing off a bit especially while the summer heat is here and just getting him to do some past papers nearer the time. He just needs to do 2 VR papers for the test- or am I taking too much of a risk?
He has also fallen out a bit with maths in school as he says it is boring- not sure if this is because he is not challenged enough or he does not like having to do anything repetetive or just because he is a normal almost 10 yr old boy. Any top tips would be appreciated.
Just spotted your post. Have you read "High scorers.. what do you think made the difference" in the Glos section ? Not wholly relevant to your situation, but some useful tips.viewtopic.php?f=16&t=22744&start=0
