(29th July -17th August 2013)
CONTENT: Intensive courses in Verbal Reasoning and Non-verbal Reasoning, Essential Maths, Advanced Maths and English (Creative Writing and Comprehension)
WHO IS IT FOR? Years 5 to 7 students (10 to 13 years)
This course covers Book 6 (Algebra) in detail by S. Curran (Book 6 will be covered in the 11+ course but large parts will be left out). Children will also do advanced tests which are challenging. The course aims to push children to level 6 in the National Curriculum. It is an excellent preparation for those who will be sitting examinations for the Independent Schools in January. Many children need a fresh challenge by the end of July and this 9 day course provides it over the long summer break. Many of the highest achieving children in the 11+ have done the Advanced Maths course.
English - Creative Writing and Comprehension
This course covers the grammar school requirements for those sitting English tests (some schools require this). It is necessary for those who are sitting for independent school places and will improve English SATs scores.
This course covers Books 1-2 by S. Curran in both Verbal Reasoning and Non-Verbal Reasoning and the children also complete 12 Verbal Reasoning tests and 6 Non-Verbal Reasoning tests. This course is essential for 11+ success.
Note: Children often join the Essential Maths course and the Verbal and Non-verbal Reasoning course for revision purposes. If they have not achieved a high enough standard in the year long course by July, this is an excellent way of boosting a child's performance.
