Is your child in Year 5 and preparing for a grammar or independent school exam?
Are you looking for new and inventive ways to inspire revision this summer?
With thoughts of ice lollies, picnics in the park and playing out with friends, 11plus revision rarely springs to mind at this time of year. However, with just three months to go until the entrance exams, it is essential that your child doesn’t lose their 11+ momentum!
Here are some surprising statistics on the academic dip that children experience from a lack of learning over the six weeks holiday:
With over 16 years of experience in preparing children for the 11+ exam, we understand what it takes to succeed. KSOL’s expert tutors have provided four top tips to ensure your child reaches their full potential with revision this summer!
1. Find out what type of learner your child is
Every child is unique and has a different way of absorbing and retaining information. For example, some children are auditory learners, retaining information best when speaking and listening, whilst others are visual learners who prefer learning with colours or images.
Identify which type of learning style your child responds best to and tailor their revision accordingly!
2. Introduce them to something new
Preparing for the 11 plus exam requires young children to sit for thirty minutes or more on a specific topic every evening. Learning new skills, for example a hobby or interest, will not only help improve concentration, but also increase a child’s confidence when it comes to approaching new challenges. This will really benefit your child when they are faced with tricky topic areas in their revision.
3. Incorporate problem solving into your daily plans
When out for the day, allocate your child a small spending budget to manage. Ask them to calculate how much money they have remaining at each stage. Not only does budgeting teach children the value of money, it also encourages independence and the importance of mathematics in everyday life. Give it a go. No calculators allowed!
4. Take your revision outdoors
Put the pens and pencils away for the day and find an educational excursion that’s close to home. Whether it’s a summer revision course or a day out to the museum with friends, change your child’s learning environment from time to time. They’ll be revising without even realising!
