Familiar with the term ‘Summer Slide’? During the long summer holidays, children slip out of learning and fall behind. In effect, it refers to a loss of knowledge and ability when they are away from regular education.
What are the effects of ‘summer slide’? Research into summer slide reveals some shocking facts! It can take several weeks for students to recap on what they learnt before the long summer break, making them fall behind with reading and spelling skills, literacy and maths skills and by the time they get back into learning, the 11 Plus selection test is upon them.
What are the benefits of attending our summer school? Whether you choose to send your child for one day, a week or the whole 15 days of summer school, they will find it fun and energetic and a great chance to boost their confidence in preparation for the 11 Plus selection test.
The Masterclasses are carefully structured to cover both English comprehension and creative writing tips and techniques, as this subject has proven to be the most challenging area of the Grammar School selection test. We will also cover the trickiest areas of Maths and Verbal Reasoning.
For those wishing to sit the Heckmondwike Grammar School or Skipton Grammar Schools selection test, we will also include Non-Verbal Reasoning.
Don’t let your child miss out on the best start to secondary education!
