Mother's Day Tributes from 11 Plus Students

As per the National Curriculum requirements, our 11 Plus programme continues to emphasise children’s enjoyment encouraging them to develop their enthusiasm in writing, hence our 11 Plus students' English homework during the Mother's Day week was to write an essay thanking their mother and present to her on Mother's Day. Above are samples of their work.

11 Plus Entrance Exam Preparation

Here at Crown Tuition Eleven Plus Grammar School Entrance Exam Programme will prepare your child by covering Verbal and Non-Verbal Reasoning, Maths and English in preparation for the eleven plus entrance examinations at the grammar schools in Redbridge, Essex and Kent. The prgramme starts from Year 3 building a foundation for the children to reach their full potential. There are also entry points at Year 4 and at Year 5.

Tuition is held at our centre, weekdays from 4:30pm until 8:30pm, Saturdays lessons are between 10am and 8pm and Sundays between 10.00am and 6.00pm. The lessons will cover the four subjects listed above and pupils will be expected to do homework that will be marked by parents. We will feed back to you via the homework diary.

Parents need to be cautious pursuing extreme practice for 11 Plus where the child is only trained to write the exam but not taught the concepts and techniques. Many children who practice just 11 plus could lack in fundamental knowledge in Maths and English, which may later affect their overall Maths and English performance.

During the year 4, we believe it is essential that parents discuss about their child’s secondary school education opportunities with the Primary School Head Teacher.
