From April students should be completing a mock paper every week under timed conditions. Previous papers where a score of 90% has not been reached should be repeated. Any problems with answers should be brought to the next lesson with me to go over.
Book a mock exam with me before your Year 5 child takes a mock exam at one of the organisations found under the Links page to external mock organisations. This gives students confidence and gets them used to working under timed conditions. Personal feedback in the next tutor session will motivate them and help to take away the fear of sitting tests. It will also enable us to see what needs to be improved.
