11 Plus Foundation Course
YEAR 4 (Year 5 September): 11 PLUS FOUNDATION COURSE - see class info below
Our Year 4 Foundation Course consists of two courses within one - the weekly 11+ Tuition Course and the once monthy Mock Exam Course.
The 11 Plus Foundation Course prepares Year 4 pupils in all four subjects (Mathematics, English, Verbal and Non-verbal Reasoning) as required for the 11 plus exams. They will be taught all topics required prior to entry to the 11 Plus Preparation Course starting in the January of Year 5. Year 4 children will also be introduced to technique, timing and mock exam practice.
Tuition is held at various locations on weekdays after school and at weekends. Class locations, days and times are shown in the table below.
Each weekly lesson is 2 hours (2¼ hours in 2018) and is split into two parts. The first part is an 'individual' teaching session held in a small group of 8 - 10 children. The second part is a timing/technique session and is held in a larger teaching group to provide an exam 'atmosphere' and to enable your child to learn to focus under timed conditions.
Advanced vocabulary work and creative writing are also taught during the larger teaching group sessions to encourage discussion and to enable children to learn from each other. This allows children to develop their writing skills to a high level within a supportive and fun environment.
The Year 4 course also includes a once monthly Mock Exam session. This takes place on a Sunday and is 2¾ hours in length. Please see under the Mock Exam Course for further details.
Your child will receive tuition covering all four subjects (Mathematics, English, Verbal and Non-verbal Reasoning) as required for the 11 plus exams. All class books, mock exam papers, assessments, parent's evenings, resources and a homework diary are included within the course fees.
