A high-quality education in English teaches children to speak and write fluently allowing them to communicate their ideas and thoughts to their peers, family or school staff. Through reading widely your child can access a variety of literature allowing them to acquire knowledge and to build on what they already know.
For 11+ exam success your child should be able to read easily, fluently and with good understanding. Try to encourage them to develop the habit of reading widely and often, for both pleasure and, as is required, for school exams. Reading all sorts of texts will help them to expand their vocabulary.
A vocabulary list for the 11+ can be useful as a good vocabulary is essential for success in the 11+ exam. Good comprehension is critical and draws from linguistic knowledge especially in vocabulary and grammar. Your child’s comprehension skills develop through parent/teacher/child discussion as well as from reading a range of stories, poems, fiction and non-fiction.
A detailed knowledge of spelling, vocabulary, grammar, punctuation will greatly improve your child’s chances of success in the 11+ exam.
By the end of year 6 your child is expected to have knowledge of many aspects of English including sentence structure, prefixes, suffixes, how to convert nouns or adjectives into verbs, how to use commas and apostrophes, and they need to be able to find words and their synonym or antonym.
As there is a lot of content to be revised and covered knowledge of all these items will help prepare your child for the demands of any 11+ exam. English tests may also form part of a private school selection exam.
