The English Workbook

Build confidence and competence across all aspects of literacy.

The English Workbook is designed to improve and develop pupils’ literacy skills by helping them understand procedures, recounts, exposition, narratives and reports. Split across 10 units of work, pupils are given various literacy practice activities covering speaking, listening, writing, grammar, editing, vocabulary, spelling and reading.

The English Workbook is the ideal skills-based book to accompany your writing programme. It guides pupils step-by-step through each of five different writing genres, providing sample texts of each genre that pupils use to analyse and understand how to structure their own writing.

The genres covered are:

  • Recount
  • Procedure
  • Narrative
  • Report
  • Exposition (persuasive)

These genres and the approaches are consistent with the PDST Writing Genres and the First Steps approach to writing.

It complements and links in perfectly with our Teaching Writing Skills copymaster, used in many schools as the central resource for their whole-school writing programme. Using both resources provide teachers with a strong structure and practice for teaching children how to write.
