11 PLUS TUITION – THE SATCHEL APPROACH

How we tackle the Calderdale 11 plus exam

The Calderdale maths paper is changing for September 2021. It will be produced by GL Assessment and is likely to consist of 50 multiple choice questions in 50 minutes.

Children in Satchel begin by working on their mental maths and key operations, before moving onto fraction, decimal and percentage work. There are a number of topics included in the Calderdale maths test that they may not have seen at school before. These are covered in specially designed Satchel booklets, as well as the small group sessions. Children then start working on exam style questions, fine tuning their exam technique in the lead up to the exam.

There are major changes to the English paper for the September 2021 Calderdale test. The paper will be produced by GL Assessment and will be multiple choice. It is likely to have 49/50 questions to be answered in 50 minutes. The children will be required to read a passage and complete around 25 questions that test comprehension, vocabulary and grammar. There are separate sections (each around 8 questions) on spelling, grammar and completing a passage with the correct word.

In Satchel children normally start on dedicated comprehension, vocabulary, spelling and grammar booklets. They are also encouraged to borrow a wide range of 11 plus level books from the class library. In the small group sessions children are talked through practice 11 plus test papers. They will complete a number of mock English question papers at class and at home.

The Calderdale 11 plus test is changing for September 2021. Produced by GL Assessment, the verbal reasoning paper is likely to continue with 50 multiple choice questions to be answered in 30 minutes. Children in Satchel are shown the techniques to answer each style of question, as well as working on their knowledge of vocabulary. With sufficient practice, it is possible to obtain a high score in the verbal reasoning paper. This can compensate for the difficulty of the English and maths papers.
