Synopsis

Understanding English: Spelling 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. Spelling meets the National Curriculum requirements for Key Stage 2 English, and covers the following areas: prefixes and suffixes, using a dictionary, syllables, tricky words, word structure, word families, and homophones. This book describes a range of spelling strategies, including learning how to spell specific words, remembering spelling rules and checking for mistakes. 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.
