New Wave English in Practice
Based on the hugely popular New Wave Mental Maths series, New Wave English in Practice concentrates on several core areas of English language learning, providing ample practice for children in these areas. A six-book English programme of pupil books for 1st to 6th Class pupils.
The wide and varied range of content in each pupil book focuses broadly on:
The content targets a wide range of English language structures and concepts within these broad areas and the emphasis is on providing children with daily practice using a concise question format. Repetition and revision help to consolidate the children’s learning.
Like their maths’ counterparts, these books recognise, and take full advantage of, the value of incidental teaching and learning. Teachers will welcome the focus on the common problem areas of the English language throughout the series. They will also appreciate how these books address different strands and objectives of the English curriculum in a concise and direct way. The emphasis on practice, repetition and revision will help children acquire and strengthen the skills they need to be competent and confident in their use of English.
Each book comprises 15 units with 10 individual day’s work in each unit. The days are labelled using a numbered format allowing teachers to use the book flexibly and to suit their own teaching style. Revision units are placed at the back of each book. The revision units revise the content, concepts and question type of each unit and are useful for assessment purposes at regular intervals. Alternatively, these units could be used at the end of the year to revise all the content that has been covered. Pupil record sheets have been included in each book to help children record and monitor their own progress.
