With the prospect of a new English national curriculum and the Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar test, children’s vocabulary development has never been more important.
The Teacher’s Guide covers 12 different topics ranging from definitions, common root words to standard and non-standard English. The Pupil Book offers the opportunity to reinforce teaching through written activities.
The Teacher’s Guide could be particularly useful for teachers looking for a structured approach to teaching vocabulary, or to refresh their own subject knowledge.
Each lesson plan in the Teacher’s Guide has clear learning objectives linked to the national curriculum. The introduction provides activities to present the learning focus, and learning can be extended through enrichment activities which offer some great opportunities to investigate vocabulary through newspapers, loop games and mimes. Though there are written consolidation activities, these could easily be incorporated into practical collaborative ones, which may extend the children’s learning further.
