Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This study book covers everything your child will need to learn for the Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling part of the new Key Stage two SATs. This is not really a workbook, although there are three question books available in each area (Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling) which contain lots of practice questions. The book is split into four different sections: Grammar (nouns, pronouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, etc, along with a few test-style questions at the end of each section), Sentence Grammar (phrases and clauses, connectives, etc), Punctuation (apostrophes, commas, brackets and dashes, colons, semi-colons, etc) and Spelling (plurals, prefixes, suffixes, synonyms and antonyms, etc).
I really like the CPG books and this is a clear and colourful example, with good explanations of everything that needs to be covered in the SATs tests. There is a useful glossary and answers to all the questions included at the back. However, you will probably need the workbooks – or, at least, the one for the area your child finds the most difficult – as there aren’t really enough questions in this to give enough practice in all the different areas. Overall, though, a useful and well presented tool, which can be used both for studying from and as a reference book .
