I have just been working on codes with a bright, able and articulate Eleven Plus girl today. The content was abstract, abstruse and wholly surreal. It was obviousy manufactured and the designer of the questions was clearly trying to be be impressive. Why not offer some codes like this?
Of course every eleven plus child will immediately recognise:
Too wise you are
Too wise you be.
I see you are
Too wise for me.
This type of exercise has a point - and at least some humour.
Oh well .......
