The best time to start the 11 plus preparation for your son or daughter depends largely on their current attainment in primary school. However based on our experience it is recommended your childs starts at year 4 if he or she is thinking seriously of taking the 11 plus exam.
If one start early from year 4 onwards, Elite 11 plus tuition will provide a formal workable plan of action for both Year 4 and Year 5.
For eliminating gaps in their learning, the pupil will definitely benefit from a regular weekly tuition. Positively, any support focused on the 11 plus will also pay dividends in general schoolwork and SATS
Elite 11 plus tuition has 2 phase preparation for excelling in 11 plus examination. This 2 year tuition framework covers all elements of the National Curriculum ( Maths ,English & Reasoning )that are assessed in 11 plus examination..
Year 4-Foundation Stage-Phase 1
Weekly 90 minutes group tuition provided for this phase. The groups are formed based on similar level of ability. The main aim of this phase is to make sure all pupils have the basic foundation blocks for success in the final 11 plus exams. We cover the National Curriculum at KS2 (level 4 & 5)for Maths and English with emphasis on mental arithmetic, learning core concepts in maths( basic & intermediate), spelling, grammar , punctuation, vocabulary, developing english comprehension skills, developing reasoning skills, learning reading skills, introduction to creative writing.
All students have varied level of academic foundation and will accordingly need calibrated levels of coaching and personalised teaching to achieve their potential by exceling in 11+ examination. Importantly the skills and foundational knowledge pertaining to Maths and English are NOT routinely taught in all primary state schools, so in essence we provide the necessary knowledge, skills and mindset to fill this gap and get the students prepared to a base level from where they can excel in 11 plus test. During this phase we teach at a level which is above the one expected in primary state schools. As a result during the course of the phase 1 year, parents and teachers begin to see a measurable improvement in the student knowledge ,skills, attitude, confidence, attainment and awareness of areas of improvement.
We provide regular weekly home work. The students will be able to get maximum benefit from the tuition only if they complete weekly home work which in turn will help to consolidate their learning and increase their requisite skills.
Regular feedback is provided during this phase for proactive improvement in skills and knowledge.
Year 5-Acceleration Stage-Phase 2
