The Oxford Junior Dictionary is ideal for the KS2 curriculum, with carefully levelled words and phrases, word classes, age-appropriate example sentences, and extra language help with grammar, punctuation, word families, and word origins. It is easy to use with its clear layout, and the full alphabet with tabs on every page.

Synopsis

Oxford Junior Dictionary by Oxford Dictionaries

A fresh new look for the Oxford Junior Dictionary which features thousands of words and phrases in alphabetical order, in a clear and accessible design. Each entry contains simple, easy-to-read numbered meanings, word classes, and age-appropriate example sentences. These are taken from well-known children's authors, such as Dick King-Smith, Jacqueline Wilson, and Roald Dahl. They show the words actually in use to reinforce meaning, and inspire children to use language more effectively, making them more independent in their reading and writing. Tinted panels provide extra language information on overused words, words belonging to the same family, and key language topics (such as connectives or apostrophes). This is powered by the Oxford Children's Corpus, a unique electronic database of millions of words of writing for children. Extra material carefully levelled for this age includes information on spelling success, punctuation, simple grammar, key overused words (with alternatives) as well as word origins, prefixes and suffixes. Navigation is easy with the guidewords, and the full alphabet on every page with a dark blue tab on the letter of the page. For free additional word games, puzzles, and activities, go online to the www.oxforddictionaries.com/schools website.

Reviews

‘[The Oxford younger dictionaries] make use of a handy letter string running around the margin of each page which highlights the letter in question. This careful emphasis on the alphabet (a fragile skill in the 5-plus age group at whom this dictionary is aimed) is very helpful’. Independent

‘An attractive and practical tool for any child, and excellent value for money.’ The Teacher
