  • Being read to (a book that is more challenging than you would read yourself) – we like this at any age including adults
  • Discussing books
  • Reading different forms of writing (poetry, magazines, newspapers, reports, non-fiction)
  • Using a dictionary/computer/kindle to find words they don’t know
  • Asking inference questions related to pictures, drama or real life, for example, “You think Luisa Madrigal in Encanto is stressed but she said she was fine, how do you know? What evidence can you find? What tells you she is stressed?”

This will consist of one 30-minute Arithmetic test (40 marks) and two 40-minute Reasoning Tests (35 marks each).
