The English Skills Box

Written by: Pete Henshaw | Published:

The English Skills Box by Prim-Ed Publishing is available as a series of three boxes for key stage 1, lower key stage 2 and upper key stage 2.

The resources offer opportunities for pupils to read an exciting range of graded texts to support, match or challenge their needs and to creatively apply their skills and knowledge of English comprehension, vocabulary, spelling, grammar and punctuation.

The careful grading and steady skills progression mean that the cards may be used in whole-class teaching, small guided reading groups or independently by the pupils. Follow-up, skills-focused activities link to English national curriculum requirements and the content domains for reading, spelling, punctuation and grammar, as featured in the SATs.

Five progress tests are available for each box to help review knowledge and skills along the way. Tests are written in the style of SATs and answers are available in the teacher guide provided.
