5.0 out of 5 stars very useful for new KS2 sats revision, 12 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling: Revision Workbook (Letts Key Stage 2 Success) (Paperback)
I have just bought this book to help my Yr6 daughter revise for SATS. English SATS have changed this year to include a new specific paper on spelling etc. As there are no official past test papers for them to practice, I thought this could be handy. It also comes with a very useful internet link to a free downloadable example SATS paper with a marking scheme so your child can experience a test after practising. I would not usually bother with test revision/workbooks etc but this book has proved invaluable in helping my daughter with the trickier areas of grammer and has helped her understand some trickier concepts such as clauses and subordinate clauses etc whilst reinforcing her knowledge in other areas. We have now complated about 3 chaptes of the book and she is is quite happy to do them for about 15-20 mins a day (long enough so far to do one chapter).The best thing is I can see he confidence increasing as she is beginning to grasp some of the things that she was finding difficult in class.
The book from what I have read so far could do with a little more expanding on spelling rules to learn but there are plenty of useful sections on learning strategies etc

Only regret with this book is that the publishers have written more books in this series for the other areas of English (that on reading this book I would have purchased) eg reading etc that are not due to be published until after this years SATS in June!!!!!!!Thank goodness though they got this one out in time!!!!

Just to say this book made a massive difference to her SATS results in the end and to her confidence. She has now quickly progressed onto Level 6 at secondary school and is doing really well.
