Synopsis

Understanding English: Grammar by Carol Matchett

Understanding English is a series of topic-based study books for children in Key Stage 2, providing rigorous practice of key subject areas. Each topic contains a concise summary of the information required by the National Curriculum, making the series ideal for use as preparation for the Key Stage 2 tests. Each book is a stand-alone resource, so children can either work through them in order or focus on individual aspects of the subject. Together, the eight books support the whole of the Key Stage 2 English curriculum, providing a solid foundation for success in English. Grammar meets the National Curriculum requirements for Key Stage 2 English, and covers the following areas: adjectives, nouns, comparatives and superlatives, singular and plural, pronouns, verbs, adverbs, tenses, conjunctions, active and passive sentences, informal and formal speech, prepositions and clauses. This book provides a complete course in grammar, describing the different types of words and explaining how these words can be put together in sentences and texts. Key features of Understanding English include: an 'Explanation' to introduce each topic; activities to consolidate and revise knowledge and skills; thought-provoking facts to foster a love of learning beyond the National Curriculum; 'Now you try' activities to develop children's understanding of English outside the classroom.
