Our Reasoning Workshops are designed to teach children how to approach Reasoning and CAT questions for a variety of schools. These include schools in The 11+ London Consortium and for those children sitting exams set by GL Assessment.
We strongly believe that Reasoning can be taught and that children who become familiar with this type of testing will do better on the day.
All too often students approach reasoning papers with random guessing, having been given no guidance on how to tackle the questions. Whilst it is true that some children have a natural ability to spot patterns, that does not mean that those who don't are a lost cause - they simply need to be shown the way!
During the workshops, we will work through each type of reasoning question as a group; we explain the method and approach required for each type of question, and highlight the patterns to look for.
There are some key concepts that we will focus on that will help children to succeed with reasoning exams.
- Verbal Reasoning: Numerical pattern recognition; identifying verb vs noun forms; identifying homophones; code breaking.
- Non-Verbal Reasoning: Applying the spatial operations of rotation, reflection & translation; scale and proportion; multi-step operations.
