11 Plus Tutoring System

Tuition in Year 4 and Year 5 is specifically geared towards the 11+ entrance examinations into both State Grammar and Independent Schools. Our Year 4 Foundation course prepares children in the essential 11+ skills enabling them to make a smooth transition into the 11 Plus Preparation Course in Year 5.

Mrs Jones Education has developed an excellent, progressive teaching system using a combination of our own course materials, a wide range of workbooks and past exam paper practice. The children are thoroughly tutored and prepared for their examinations, taking them to a much higher level than specified to ensure they have the greatest opportunity for success.

Lesson Structure

We use a combined system of small group teaching and timed mock exam practice. This ensures that each child receives maximum individual attention as well as being able to experience real exam conditions.

11 Plus classes for Year 4 are 2 hours in length and Year 5 are 2¼ hours. Classes are split into two parts. One part of the lesson is a teaching session consisting of a small group of between 8 and 10 children, where your child will receive tuition on an individual basis.

The second part is a combined teaching, timing and technique session and is in a larger group to allow your child to become familiar with the test situation and improve their speed and accuracy. The timing and technique sessions are very important as this is an area where many children fall down in their exams. During this second part, we also do creative writing and vocabulary work.

11 Plus Course Content

Verbal and Non-verbal Reasoning (including 3D and Spatial) - Vocabulary - Spelling - Punctuation - Grammar - Creative Writing - Comprehension - Cloze procedure - Times Tables – Mathematics and Numeracy – Problem Solving - General Knowledge - Mock Exam Practice - Interview Technique - Science (if required)

11+ Mock Exam Course

This allows your child to practice 11+ mock tests under real exam conditions. Both year 4 and Year 5 children attend once a month and complete a timed examination in each subject - maths, English, verbal and non-verbal reasoning. Children will learn to apply a range of methods and exam techniques and be able to practice completing the computer answer forms as required for their 11+ exams.

Homework

Homework is set each week and forms an important part of the course. Any difficulties with homework will be addressesed at the next tuition session. A homework diary and further details regarding homework will be provided during the first lesson.

Parent Consultations

Parents evenings are held in May and provide an opportunity for all parents to discuss their child’s progress with a teacher and for Year 5 parents to discuss senior school options.

Fees

Tuition fees are paid on a monthly basis and are inclusive of all class workbooks, text books, resources, equipment, past exam papers and tuition in all four subjects. Further details of our course fees, can be found by going to the 'Main Menu' and clicking on 'Courses'.
