11 Plus Verbal Reasoning

"Multiple-matching sentence cloze"

Complete the paragraphs in the story below by selecting one of the sentences A-E. You can use a sentence once only.

Jo was in the attic with mask, torch and magnifying glass, checking for woodworm. It was tremendously energy-sapping just being up there.  The attic was always stifling, but more than usual now on account of the high humidity. __________(Sentence 1)__________

Then a change. The rustling sound of the leaves on the trees outside suddenly died away and the twitter of chattering birds stopped. Vaguely sensing the change, Jo looked up from the magnifying glass, and strained to listen. An ominous shadow then moved smoothly and silently over the rafters and the sultry atmosphere intensified still further. __________(Sentence 2)__________

Just after he had done so, the stillness was shattered in an instant by a tremendous whooshing, followed by a ferocious blast of wind. The force of the wind blew Jo off his feet and the magnifying glass spiralled away, smashing against the far wall. He managed to swing both legs either side of the rafter and brought his other arm over the top, clinging on like a koala bear.  He pressed his head against the wooden beam and clung on as the deafening wind billowed through the darkened attic. __________(Sentence 3)__________

A: Whenever it rained hard, the roof started to leak.
B: Suddenly, Jo felt himself shooting upwards as the entire roof peeled off and flew up into the air.
C: Jo felt like a tropical plant in a glass house on a hot, sunny day.
D: Jo looked for his screwdriver.
E: Instinctively, Jo switched off the torch and let it fall by his side and hooked his free arm around the rafter near his head.

The 11+ course covers the 3 main areas of the 11 Plus - Verbal Reasoning, Non-Verbal Reasoning and Numerical Reasoning. The 11 Plus lessons are taught on a One to One basis (private lessons) enabling the 11+ teacher t o identify strengths and weaknesses and to focus on weaker areas needing improvement.

The BSE Beaconsfield 11 Plus course starts in September and lasts for 3 terms. There is also an 11 Plus Summer School in August. The 11+ lessons are 75 minutes long, so the pupils can practise and focus on 11+ exercises for an extended period. The teacher always sets homework after the lessons for completion by the following week and this is an important part of the 11 Plus course.
