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.
Fifth and sixth class:
In the fifth and sixth class books, there are twenty daily questions for children to complete. Questions on spelling, vocabulary and word building focus on prefixes, suffixes, singular and plurals, synonyms, antonyms and homophones. Confusing words and common errors are also practiced. The punctuation questions deal with commas, apostrophes and the increasing importance of speech marks in direct speech. The grammar questions ensure that pupils are familiar with, and can recognise, grammatical terms such as pronouns, adverbs, prepositions, types of nouns and conjunctions. These books contain questions that challenge children and provide enough repetition and revision to ensure mastery of literacy concepts.
