The Year 6 children took part in a mock exam as part of the Senior School transition preparation. We introduced this a few years ago to help the children gain valuable examination experience.
The children are able to prepare for what it will be like on the day if they are taking an exam in January, and those who aren’t are able to ‘enjoy’ the examination experience as preparation for when they move to Senior School.
Getting used to the conditions, the noise (or silence!), working under pressure etc are all essential skills and the mock exam certainly helps the children to acclimatise.
The children sat exams in English (Essay & Comprehension), Maths and Reasoning (verbal and non-verbal). If you would like to see what is required of them, along with photos of them hard at work, click here.
