This new edition of the Oxford Primary Dictionary in hardback supports the curriculum’s higher vocabulary expectations by including more varied vocabulary. It also now features a unique selection of fictional words for creatures or places from children’s reading and writing.
All the entries have clear and simple definitions with word classes and inflections given in full. Children will discover example sentences from the authors they love to read, such as Cressida Cowell, Roald Dahl and J. K. Rowling.
‘Try also’ guides at the top of pages help to locate tricky-to-find words in the alphabet, word origins are given in ‘Did you know?’ panels, and Spelling Alerts flag up tricky spellings.
The updated supplement provides grammar and punctuation information to support children’s reading and writing, making it the ideal dictionary for boosting reading skills and building word power.
A companion to the new updated edition of the Oxford Primary Thesaurus for all young writers.
