Essential English Skills Book 5 by Carol Matchett


Essential English Skills Book 5 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 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. This book helps students learn to: control complex sentences confidently, manipulate clauses for effect, express subtle distinction of meaning, form conditional and passive sentences and use known words to spell unfamiliar ones.
