New Wave English In Practice 2 Second Class Prim Ed.
The wide and varied range of content in each book focuses broadly on:spellingvocabulary and word studygrammar and punctuationThe content targets a wide range of English language structures and concepts within these broad areas and the emphasis is on providing children with daily practice using a concise question format. Repetition and revision help to consolidate the children’s learning.
Each book comprises 15 units with 10 individual day’s work in each unit. The days are labelled using a numbered format allowing teachers to use the book flexibly and to suit their own teaching style. Revision units are placed at the back of each book. The revision units revise the content, concepts and question type of each unit and are useful for assessment purposes at regular intervals. Alternatively, these units could be used at the end of the year to revise all the content has been covered. Pupil record sheets have been included in each book to help children record and monitor their own progress.
First and second class:
The first and second class books feature ten questions each day and focus on the common problem areas of English that repeated practice can improve. Therefore, huge emphasis is placed on phonics, spellings, syllables and high frequency words. Repetition of these words is provided throughout the books to ensure children encounter them in a variety of contexts. Word building and vocabulary are practised to help children understand how words work and how they can be used in sentences. The importance of reading for understanding is recognised and is specifically integrated into some of the question types. Confusing words and common errors in writing are also targeted to ensure that children encounter these issues on a continual basis. Through repeated practice, the children should develop the skills to avoid these problems in their own personal writing. Simple grammar structures are repeatedly practised. For example, the uses of capital letters in different contexts, question marks and full stops are given ample treatment throughout.
