The two boards have been archived and reset to allow year 5 students to start working on writing.
The year 6 students have now completed the selective test. Writing performance has been very good this year with students getting interviews for early scholarships. One student has been offered a 100% scholarship at a top boy school this week. More offers are expected to come in the next few weeks.
Only about 50% of the year 6 actually participated in the writing forum. The active students have improved enormously. After all, writing performance requires students to make an effort to write. Those who don't make an effort cannot improve. It is as simple as that.
Hopeful, the new group of year 5 students will be more active. Parents should encourage the kids to take writing very seriously. Writing is often the weakest area for all kids.
