Helps children to revise topics covered by the other seven books in the Understanding English
series, keeping their skills sharp and preparing them for the national tests at Key Stage 2.
As well as preparing children for the short-answer questions in the new skills tests, this practice book supports them in literacy work across the entire school curriculum. The reading and writing sections are of particular benefit to those children whom you wish to enter for the Level 6 test, which includes an extended writing task.
Each page in this 104-page book is cross-referenced to the topic-based main series. If you provide access to the other Understanding English books, children who find particular activities difficult will quickly be able to locate explanations that remind them of the best way to proceed. This will enable children to develop a new independence and confidence in their work. A pull-out answer section is provided, making marking simple.
Understanding English Practice covers:
- reading and writing poetry
- reading and writing fiction
- reading and writing non-fiction.
