With a clear, colourful layout and quirky bird characters this is a fun-to-use dictionary with a difference.
The dictionary divides into sections – the first provides explanations for all the grammar terms required for the primary curriculum, the second, punctuation marks and when to use them, and the third section provides spelling rules, tips and examples. New for this edition is a fourth section on how to discover different words and to grow your vocabulary. This provides perfect support for building language in context and improving literacy skills at the end of primary school. Finally, there is an alphabetical dictionary of tricky spellings – with no meanings – but with hints and tips on how to avoid making spelling mistakes.
These words are chosen using analysis of real children’s writing in the Oxford Children’s Corpus.
It is a valuable resource for preparation for tests at the end of primary school.
