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 6 is an extension book for pupils who have successfully completed English Skills 5. It enables them to fully employ, reinforce and build on the skills and knowledge already acquired and prepares them for highly effective use of functional skills in English throughout Key Stage 3 and beyond. Designed for Years 6 and 7, this book may also be used with older or younger pupils. It helps pupils learn to: write clear and unambiguous sentences, vary sentence structure for purpose and effect, explore subtle differences in punctuation, match language to purpose and context, and use known words to understand new ones.
