Catapult has been developed to enable students who are below expected standards at age 11 to make the progress they need. Catapult provides students with the skills and knowledge to advance confidently in their English studies, whilst giving teachers the tools they need to track progression. This student book provides thematic chapters packed with relevant and accessible sources along with carefully structured activities across four key areas
(building vocabulary, knowledge and understanding, reading skills and writing skills) that enable all students to make progress. Regular 'Check your skills' activities and end-of-chapter assessments enable them to demonstrate what they have learned and allow teachers to track their progress.
This is Book 1 in the Catapult Series. See all Catapult books here.
