Product description for teachers and tutors

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 English grammar, punctuation and spelling test. 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.

Non-fiction meets the National Curriculum requirements for Key Stage 2 English, and covers the following areas: using reference books, skim reading, fact and opinion, technical words, summaries, discussions, explanations and reports. The book also shows how a range of non-fiction texts – including instructions, accounts and advertisements – can best be understood.

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.

Good book, but no answers, so difficult to know whether you are right or wrong?
