Test number 1 contains English questions related to poems, a diary extract and reading instructions. This paper makes demands on your child's English language and grammar including knowledge of plurals, adjectives, similes, spelling, speech marks and verbs. These types of different AQE English based questions will often demand that your child has read widely and been made aware of a range of language that they will be presented with in the actual exam.
It also requires your child to have a good vocabulary which you can develop by encouraging your child to read widely using a wide assortment of texts.
The maths questions in test paper 1 include questions on shape & space including area and length, volume, weight, money and number facts. There are other questions related to time, percentages, fractions and data handling. These questions will require your child to apply their mathematical knowledge to problem solving and to work quickly and accurately.
In the test situation your child will need quick and accurate recall of their number facts. To answer the maths questions quickly your child needs to have been taught, revised and have practiced his/her number facts often to be able to recall them quickly.
These topics should and will have been covered as part of the teaching and learning at their school. Additional reinforcement and revision is always of benefit as preparation for this transfer test.
A sound knowledge of all aspects of English and mathematics are essential to aid your child in preparing for this important exam and working through our P6/7 packs in English and mathematics will improve a child's ability in both subjects.
