English Tution Year 3-6

Primary School Years 3-6: What’s covered in the KLC English Programme?

The Kidbrooke Learning Centre English Programme provides pupils with the opportunity to work to the best of their ability. Our tutors provide access to a range of exciting literature that focus on reading and writing skills.

Many year 3-6 pupils have the intention of taking the 11 Plus exam. One of the first steps in preparation for the 11 Plus English exam is having a sound understanding of what to expect from the paper. Depending on the exam body that administers the test in your local area, the format of the exam paper can vary.There are two main 11 Plus exam boards and although their exam formats contain some similarities, there are differences that will impact how your child prepares for the 11 Plus English exam. Fortunately, the same skills are assessed so whichever exam body administers your child’s 11 Plus English exam, the test papers will generally assess at least some of the following elements:

Spelling

Punctuation

Grammar

Vocabulary

Literacy

Comprehension

Creative writing

The year 3-6 curriculum at KidbrookeLearning Centre is created to support pupils in their acquisition of these important skills and promote academic success. KLC is dedicated to fostering a love of learning and encourages pupils to be independent learners.
