    Paperback
    Comprising six pupil books and six accompanying teacher's guides, one for each primary school year, Schofield & Sims Grammar and Punctuation is a comprehensive programme for teaching grammar and punctuation while also building on vocabulary, reading and writing skills. Through structured lessons, stimulating focus texts and engaging practice activities, children not only learn the correct terminology and usage of grammar and punctuation, but also build up the skills, knowledge and confidence to apply them successfully in their own writing. The Grammar 5 pupil book contains 30 single-page lessons and covers the National Curriculum requirements for Year 5. Featured topics include fronted adverbials; relative clauses; expanded noun phrases; modal verbs and adverbs to express possibility; conditional sentences; verbs with prefixes and suffixes; commas to avoid ambiguity; auxiliary verbs; linking ideas across paragraphs; Standard English and double negatives; and parenthesis (brackets, commas and dashes).

Additional features provided at the back of the book include a glossary to support the confident use of grammatical terminology and a self-evaluation checklist to strengthen understanding and encourage pupils to assess their own learning. A separate accompanying teacher's guide, Grammar 5 Teacher's Guide (ISBN 9780721713991), contains lesson plans, answers to all the questions in the pupil book, and assessment and record-keeping resources.

Children are supported by coloured dots, dotted lines and arrows indicating where to begin each letter and how to form the shape, guidelines indicating the height and length of letters and real-life copying tasks, including writing notes, message and an invitation.

At the end of each section a 'Writing task' encourages children to apply what they have learnt in their own writing, while a 'Proofreading task' further reinforces learning. Additional features include a glossary to support the confident use of literacy terms and a progress chart to allow pupils to monitor their own skills.English Skills 1 aligns with the National Curriculum end-of-year expectations for Year 3 and covers the following topics: homophones and homonyms; main and subordinate clauses; conjunctions; prefixes and their meaning; apostrophes in contractions; inverted commas in direct speech; maintaining and changing tense; and spelling rules and exceptions. The accompanying answer book, English Skills 1 Answers (ISBN 9780721714059), contains answers to all the questions in English Skills 1 and the single Teacher's Guide (ISBN 9780721714165) contains further guidance and resources to help children practise and develop literacy skills. A selection of free supporting downloads is also available from the Schofield & Sims website.
