This 10 week course is designed to revise and extend skills learnt in Course One. There is a vast range of potential questions in the GL Assessment and my aim is to ensure our children are flexible in their thinking and confident enough to solve whichever type of question they come across. Whether that is in English, Verbal Reasoning, Maths, Non-verbal Reasoning or Spatial Awareness.
At the end of this course the children will have dramatically widened their knowledge of antonyms and synonyms. They will be interchanging basic words for more interesting vocabulary. You will see this language being used in their writing at school and speech.
A focus on mathematical problem solving will result in an increasing awareness of how to ‘tackle’ questions that require 3 steps to find an answer.
The children will have a non-verbal reasoning book to follow up on techniques taught in class. Please ensure this is returned each week. By the end of Course Two they will also have knowledge of all 17 possible Verbal Reasoning type questions and codes that may be included in the GL Assessment paper.
Awareness of speed will be encouraged through completing individual tasks within a 10 minute time slot.
10 Sessions cost £275 - includes all materials and daily practice booklet.
