Essential English Skills Book 4 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 4 is for pupils who can write compound and some complex sentences using conjunctions, phrases, adverbials and varied sentence starters. Able to spell correctly most medium frequency words, they can identify root words to help them spell and understand unfamiliar words. This book helps students learn to: experiment with sentence construction, adapt sentences to suit different purposes, use commas to separate phrases, set out and punctuate direct speech, correct errors in the use of apostrophes and apply knowledge of the word origin and roots.
