This book is clear and concise yet covers all the things a child needs to know for the subject at hand. I have just used this book as a revision aid with my 9 year old for Creative Writing and Comprehension. It is fun - children like the language used - and full of valuable helping points. I have been a teacher myself for 16 years - these books are excellent summaries! Can't remember the difference between a simile and a metaphor or what a compound sentence is? This will tell you! I can also highly recommend "The Tricky Bits" - more on grammar.

A revision guide which makes English grammar fun.
I'm a big fan of the CGP study guide series, and the KS 2 English Study Book is no exception. Our 10 year-old has worked her way through it with enthusiasm. The colourful, well-designed pages and humour make the book a surprisingly enjoyable read.
Although this book is aimed at English schoolchildren, I should have thought its comprehensive and comprehensible sections on grammar and usage (eg "When to start a new paragraph"; "Writing a formal letter") would be useful background reading for any student of the English language.

The Study Books are a good series of books for children studying for SATS exams, they are helpful to any Parent not knowing what exactly is covered at school and break the National Curriculum down into easier to understand sections in a fun way. The language used is not the best but it does lighten the tone instead of being serious and boring.

Having bought the complete set for my son with hindsight I would have just stuck to the Study books without the Tricky Bit books as a lot of the work in them is duplicated in the Study book, the Study book has the advantage of question and answer sections in them as well.

Buy the Study books with a set of practice SATS papers (Questions and Answers) and your child will gain confidence.

Downside is that you then have to mark it all!.....

This study book was just right except that is didn't have the current curriculum in it. Have to buy the 'study' issue to solidify.

If you are helping your child to improve on all aspects of written English then this is a great study book. If you are a parent and want to know exactly the types of things that are going to crop up on the Sats tests then this book shows you. The style is very friendly and there are lots of examples which are appealing to your student. The only, and minor, drawback is that at first glance it looks as though there is too much information on the page. However once you get into the key aspect it's not daunting as it covers every point needed. Well worth investing in.

These books are brilliant. Very informative. They include lots of pictures and are great for children and also good for adults who may have forgotten any facts that could help their children. I bought these for my daughter just before her sats and she found them very helpful.

I purchased a number of books to help in revision for upcoming SATS. The books are clear and split into specific areas of revision. the illustrations are good and the tips at the bottom of the pages very useful and worded such that a child will remember them.
