Synopsis

Developing Reading & Writing Skills for the Year 8 Tests Student Book by John Dayus, Andrew Bennett, Elizabeth Clark

Developing Reading and Writing Skills for the Year 8 Tests helps students to improve their skills, set targets and approach assessment with confidence. Section A systematically covers all the Year 8 Framework objectives that are closely linked to the tests. It enables students to develop and practice their skills using a wide range of literature including stimulating fiction, non-fiction and media texts. Building on work covered at Key Stage 2, it uses stepped activities and integrates effective teaching and learning methodologies. End of unit assignments are provided for easy monitoring of students' progress throughout the year. Section B clearly and accessibly explains the structure and demands of the tests. Written by Andrew Bennett, test developer, it includes diagnostic tests to help identify areas for improvement and practice tests that match the format and style of the tests. It encourages students to build the skills they need to approach the tests with confidence and succeed. Developing Reading and Writing Skills for the Year 8 Tests is accompanied by a photocopiable Teacher's Resource Pack, offering support for the Student Book, reading and writing self-assessment and target setting sheets, mark schemes for the diagnostic and practice tests, and reading and writing booklets just like those used in the year 8 tests.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

Jessica Cobbin – age 7

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!

Jemma Rubens, age 10

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

Emily Horncastle – age 11

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.
