South Wilts Grammar School for Girls has Maths, English and Verbal Reasoning in their exam. They use the GL (Granada Learning) exam board.


Bishop Wordsworth School for boys has Maths, Verbal and Non-Verbal. Verbal is anything to do with words: a mixture of traditional English and Verbal Reasoning. They use the CEM (Centre for Educational Monitoring) exam board.


During term time I teach mixed classes of boys and girls Maths, English and Verbal Reasoning.


Non-Verbal reasoning is taught during the Holiday Workshops.

1. The Daily Maths Sheet (click here for questions) and (click here for answers).
2. Subscribe to my YouTube Channel (hundreds of videos) (link to our youtube home page).
3. Listen to audiobooks together and discuss the possible outcomes (try the "Just William" series).
4. Read - anything. It doesn't have to be classic novels. The Guinness Book of Records, the back of cereal packets, Jeremy Clarkson will do just fine.
5. Try the free worksheets and download the first free Scholar's Book. (link and link to answer videos)
6. Practise following instructions e.g. cooking and craft activities.
7. Make things out of paper and card. Undo boxes for the cardboard recycling - 3D shapes constantly cause trouble.
8. Find our “What to do in year 4” button.

We will respond to Government guidelines as the need arises. If you have any particular concerns, please get in touch.

 

About half the pupils on my books in any year don’t do weekly classes. They mix and match the different things we offer to suit their own needs. They might do The Scholar’s Course booklets and videos and come in for mock exams and holiday workshops. Anxious children like to do the pre-recorded classes and virtual mock exams before they venture into live classes. Younger children need Mrs Sock. Children for whom English is a second language tend to prefer the videos because they can re-listen to them.
