Schofield & Sims English Skills provides graded questions that develop pupils’ literacy skills at Key Stage 2. Key areas are constantly revisited, giving pupils the intensive practice that is essential if they are to become fully literate. Every Schofield & Sims English Skills book is divided into three sections, each comprising 12 one-page tests covering spelling, word structure, vocabulary, sentence formation, punctuation and grammar. Each section also contains two tasks providing a tailor made context in which pupils may apply their developing skills. English Skills 1 is for pupils who can write short simple sentences and questions using simple vocabulary and punctuation. They have mastered the basics of reading and writing, but may not always spell words correctly. Designed for Year 2, this book may also be used with older or younger pupils. It helps pupils learn to: extend sentences and write compound sentences, check sense and grammatical agreement, find alternatives for everyday words and make correct spelling choices.
