Schofield & Sims English Skills provides graded questions that develop pupils' literacy skills at Key Stage 2.
Key areas are constantly revisited, giving pupils the intensive practice that is essential if they are to become fully literate.
Every Schofield & Sims English Skills book is divided into three sections, each comprising 12 one-page tests covering spelling, word structure, vocabulary, sentence formation, punctuation and grammar.
Each section also contains two tasks providing a tailor made context in which pupils may apply their developing skills.
English Skills 3 is for pupils who can write simple and compound sentences and use simple conjunctions.
They recognise word classes, choose vocabulary carefully and, when reminded, use punctuation accurately.
Their knowledge of prefixes and suffixes helps them to spell unfamiliar words.
Designed for Year 4, this book may also be used with older or younger pupils.
It helps pupils learn to: use a wider range of conjunctions, use relative causes, vary sentence structure, use language imaginatively, use apostrophes for possession and apply knowledge of word roots.
