English Skills Book 5 by Carol Matchett

Schofield & Sims English Skills provides graded questions that develop pupils' literacy skills at Key Stage 2. Key areas are constantly revisited, giving pupils the intensive practice that is essential if they are to become fully literate. Every Schofield & Sims English Skills book is divided into three sections, each comprising 12 one-page tests covering spelling, word structure, vocabulary, sentence formation, punctuation and grammar. Each section also contains two tasks providing a tailor made context in which pupils may apply their developing skills. English Skills 5 is for pupils who can write complex sentences using subordinate clauses, reorder phrases and begin to adapt their writing for different purposes. They use punctuation consistently and apply their knowledge of word roots and origins when spelling topic words. Designed for Year 6, this book may also be used with older or younger pupils. It helps pupils learn to: control complex sentences confidently, manipulate clauses for effect, express subtle distinction of meaning, form conditional and passive sentences, use different sentence types and use punctuation to clarify meaning.
