Schofield & Sims English Skills provides regular graded practice to develop pupils' literacy skills at Key Stage 2. Fully in line with the requirements of the National Curriculum for English, the series comprises seven pupil books with accompanying answer books, as well as a single teacher's guide. Key areas are constantly revisited, giving pupils the intensive and rigorous practice that is essential to embed learning and prepare for the Key Stage 2 national tests. The English Skills Teacher's Guide introduces the series and provides suggestions for how the English Skills pupil and answer books may best be used. Two 'Entry tests', one for lower Key Stage 2 and one for upper Key Stage 2, help you select the most appropriate pupil book and a 'Diagnostic check' allows you to pinpoint and address topics that pupils are finding challenging. Additional features include photocopiable grammar, vocabulary and writing resources; proofreading checklists; marking keys and activity prompts; and an extensive glossary covering key terms to support teacher development. A selection of free supporting downloads is also available from the Schofield & Sims website.
