Knowledge of grammar enables children to use language precisely. This book provides a complete course in grammar, describing the different types of words and explaining how these words can be put together in sentences and texts. Grammar meets the National Curriculum requirements for the key stage 2, including the following topics: adjectives, nouns, pronouns, verbs, adverbs, tenses, conjunctions, prepositions and clauses.
Understanding English is a series of topic-based study books for children in Key Stage 2, providing rigorous practice of key subject areas. Each topic contains a concise summary of the information required by the National Curriculum, making the series ideal for use as preparation for the Key Stage 2 English grammar, punctuation and spelling test. Each book is a stand-alone resource, so children can either work through them in order or focus on individual aspects of the subject. Together, the eight books support the whole of the Key Stage 2 English curriculum, providing a solid foundation for success in English.
Key features of Understanding English include:
- an ‘Explanation’ to introduce each topic
- activities to consolidate and revise knowledge and skills
- thought-provoking facts to foster a love of learning beyond the National Curriculum
- ‘Now you try’ activities to develop children’s understanding of English outside the classroom.
