Designed in colour for ease of use, this appealing thesaurus is specially compiled with the advice and guidance of teachers. The perfect companion to Chambers Primary Dictionary, Chambers Primary Thesaurus boosts the creativity and impact of young students' language. Complements the curriculum for all children in the UK aged 7-11: - Renewed Primary Framework in England and Wales - Revised Key Stage 2 Curriculum in Northern Ireland - National Guidelines in Scotland
