Summary

With a clear, colour layout and quirky bird characters to make it fun to use, this is a dictionary with a difference. The book 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. Online activities provide for easy practice at home or can be used as part of lesson starters or homework.
