Oxford Connections: Year 3: The Romans History- Pupil Book by Fiona MacDonald


Oxford Connections: Year 3: The Romans History- Pupil Book by Fiona MacDonald

Oxford Connections books are based on Literacy Consultant Sue Palmer's 'skeletons' concept whereby the children are shown a text model of the text type with which to write notes using the structure of the 'skeleton' as a guide. Within the titles there are notes, diagrams or pictures that the children will use as the basis for writing a piece of text. A genuinely cross-curricular scheme. Each book contains material to teach literacy and geography, science or history. Each book matches the literacy requirements for non-fiction for one year within the NLS, and history, geography or science material within one unit of the QCA schemes of work for the National Curriculum. Suitable for the Scottish 5-14 and Northern Ireland curricula as well. Teaches children to read and particularly to write different types of non-fiction.
