SCHOFIELD AND SIMS ENGLISH SKILLS 5
Schofield and Sims English Skills provides regular graded practice to develop pupils' literacy skills at Key Stage 2. Fully in line with the requirements of the National Curriculum for English, the series comprises seven pupil books with accompanying answer books, as well as a single teacher's guide. Key areas are constantly revisited, giving pupils the intensive and rigorous practice that is essential to embed learning and prepare for the Key Stage 2 national tests. The English Skills pupil books each contain 36 one-page tests featuring 'Warm-up' exercises, 'Word work' questions covering spelling, word structure and vocabulary and 'Sentence work' questions covering grammar, punctuation and sentence formation. At the end of each section a 'Writing task' encourages children to apply what they have learnt in their own writing, while a 'Proofreading task' further reinforces learning. Additional features include a glossary to support the confident use of literacy terms and a progress chart to allow pupils to monitor their own skills.English Skills 5 aligns with the National Curriculum end-of-year expectations for Year 6 and covers the following topics: use of a colon, semi-colon and dash between clauses; sentence variation; question tags; colons and semi-colons in lists; the active and passive voice; ellipsis; editing sentences for effect; and vocabulary and grammar for formal writing.
