For what? An 11+ test? Which region? Which school(s)?

It is really hard to answer this as you know your old child best and your family routine. A few years ago DD sat Newstead, Bexley and Kent, we had done some mock tests and she was doing well in her practice tests so we didn't need to do much. We worked on a few areas identified in the mocks as needing work, worked on a bit of comprehension as that had taken a dip but your DS may have very different needs. Prior to the summer holidays DD was doing one hour a week and we changed that to a few ten minute tests four or five days a week during the summer holidays, it worked out as maths one day, english another, NVR another and VR another day. We mainly used the Bond and Letts ten minute test books. Then she just read voraciously and asked about vocab which she didn't consider was eleven plus prep but it definitely helped. I suspect only you can say for certain what is needed and what will work best for your DS. Good luck.

All your posts have been asking for help and advice achalla, yet you never bother to reply to people's queries. Why is that?

How is your dc'c comprehension and writing now? You have posted about it previously with concerns but never responded to poster's questions. It's quite rude isn't it?

As you were. :wink:

Summer holiday plan?


Beach, bucket and spade, don't forget to pack the sun cream, and a raincoat just in case...

That’s what I thought this thread was about. DS is hoping to do some umpiring.

This is what we spent the summer before the exam doing. Relaxing. A couple of practice papers on the rainy days and anything she particularly wanted to cover when it came up.
