Year 5 11+ Algebra May Half Term Workshop, Monday 30th May, Morning (SOLD OUT)

We have recognised that an in depth understanding of Algebra is needed to pass the 11+ maths exam for both CSSE and CEM – it is a complex topic which connects to many other mathematical themes, such as: finding a missing number using inverse techniques, recognising patterns, nth term sequences, BIDMAS and knowing how to break down a complex word problem and use a formula to work it out. This workshop will focus on these crucial topics and is recommended for anyone taking the 11+ this September!

Timing and exam strategy are key to acing this exam so it is a must-do for any girl hoping to go to Chelmsford County High School for Girls Grammar School.

Our writing technique makes writing more ‘formulaic’ so that the students can follow simple steps to ensure that their writing ‘ticks the boxes’ needed to get the highest marks that they can in their 11+exam.

My children attended the Writing Workshop for years 4 and 5 in October and they absolutely loved it. The first thing my daughter said to me was that it was really fun and the time flew by. Both children have asked to go again next time you run them.
