Eleven Plus Goals

There are some amazing new exhibits at the Science Museum in London. The `Launch Pad’ is fascinating. There are over fifty interactive exhibits. The exhibit is aimed at 8 to 12 year olds. I saw plenty of mums and dads fully engaged in experimentation, discussion and investigation.

One of the most interesting elements is the ability of the experiments to cross boundaries. The Science Museum is recognised internationally. The clientele are international. As you push air through a tube to watch a vortex appear the multilingual appeal of the exhibits is evident.

Year 6 children will entranced by the rooms full of science – after all it is the Science Museum.

If you want to be able to discuss different types of Science Based careers – the room by room will provide all the stimulation you need.

Studying for an Eleven Plus examination can not only be about short term goals.

The career path of Grammar School, University and a `good job’ should also play a large part in Eleven Plus preparation.
