This can be a stressful time in the 11+ build-up, especially for parents! My lessons are an oasis as we prepare for the final tests. Whether we have days, weeks or months before The Day, children will not be pressured in my lessons and will be given every opportunity to expand their existing skills and to learn new ones, albeit sometimes at a canter rather than a trot! We will do what we can if we only have days, and we will be happy doing it.
This is a stage when children often know more of the technical approaches to Creative Writing and can identify stronger features and facts in their Comprehension. While I expand on this, my role is also to help them hesitate long enough to think about why something is done a certain way, how the reader is meant to feel, what the story might mean to someone. And why a list of adjectives is not the best descriptive technique for every test.
