Essential English Skills Book 3 by Carol Matchett


Essential English Skills Book 3 by Carol Matchett

At the request of Key Stage 3 teachers, Schofield & Sims has rebranded two key series - English Skills and Mental Arithmetic - for use at Key Stage 3 and beyond. Perfect for recovery work and for building functional skills in English, Essential English gives each student intensive practice that is matched exactly to their ability level, supporting differentiation and personalised learning. The series enables students to succeed in skill areas where they have previously failed and widens written vocabulary, helping them to gain proficiency in other subjects, both academic and vocational. Essential English Skills 3 is for pupils who can write simple and compound sentences and use simple conjunctions. They recognise word classes, choose vocabulary carefully and, when reminded, use punctuation accurately. Their knowledge of prefixes and suffixes helps them to spell unfamiliar words. This book helps students learn to: use a wider range of conjunctions, use relative clauses, vary sentence structure, use language imaginatively and apply knowledge of word roots.
