Is your child sitting exams in January?
Do you have a child sitting school entrance exams in January?
It's that time of the year when your child is ready to wind down for the Christmas period and are simply looking to chill. However, others can't quite kick back as yet, as they have their 11+ / entrance exams next month. As a parent you're faced with the question of how to motivate your child till then.
Firstly, allow your child a couple of days to unwind doing fun things. Also put together a timetable with your child indicating the following:
- study time
- leisure & fun times
- break & lunch times
- tuition times
Indicate on the timetable the subjects they'll be actioning, be it Verbal Reasoning, English, Non-Verbal Reasoning, Maths, Numerical Reasoning.
This will certainly help your child to understand the task ahead of them for their final preparations for the exam. You want their pace to be measured and not pressured.
Along the way, continually encourage them. Avoid any negative talk, as they're still only 10 or 11 year olds preparing for demanding exams. Let them know that whatever the results, you'll still be proud of them.
Here's to their success!!!
