This essential primary guide to grammar, punctuation, and spelling has a clear, colour layout and quirky bird character to make it fun to use. The book is in two parts. The first part is a reference section of simple rules, tips, and examples to improve literacy skills for the test at the end of primary school. This divides into three sections - Grammar, Punctuation, and Spelling. The second part is an easy-to-use alphabetical word list of common tricky words, with
inflections, but no meanings. This list highlights, using analysis from the Oxford Children's Corpus, words that are most frequently misspelt by this age group (age 8+), to target and rectify these common mistakes. There are helpful tips to guide the user around the alphabetical list to the word they
are looking for, and notes at key words to aid correct spellings. It is a valuable resource for preparation for the new KS2 Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling Test that occurs every May in schools. Online spelling lists, punctuation, and grammar activities are also available for easy practice at home or as part of lesson starters or as homework.
