Want to understand how the other children would cope/react with new style of questions?
Hi,my son will be 8 year old in august, he is in class 2 at the moment(key stage1),and will be going to year 3 in september, i tried to change the school, he is at private school since he was 4 +.he is happy,nocomplaintsfromteachers,Every teachers used to say ,he is doing good, improving all the time. he had an enterance test at new school for maths and english,and he failed both test. I was shocked, as what i belive that he might not be at the top level , but certainly not in bottom three. he is an average student.i spoke to his currant school teachers, first they said,they are very suprrised that he failed a test. but then after speaking to new school, they are saying his first language is not english, so he has a very limited knowledge of the english language, and thus he couldn't answer any tenses related question, and also he had been asked to write a story,he wrote it, but not according to second grade standard.
Learning issues and special needs, Helping my child with math
After this episode I started to teach him other than homework and normal maths question, and I found out that he takes time to understand any new type of question, is this norma? is this happen to most of the children?for example i used to do normal maths with him like 56 + 38 = ____ or 56- _ =38,he does it pretty quick, but in the SATS test, one of the questions is , you have 6 cards ,6,18,24,+,-,= and you have to make two number sentence using 5 cards, so the answer should be 6 + 18 = 24 , and 24-6 = 18 , he didn'd do it, is it normalor he is not clever?
