New Wave English in Practice focuses on practice, repetition and revision of English language learning, which in turn will help pupils acquire and strengthen the skills they need to be competent and confident in their use of English.
In this daily practice pupil book for 2nd Class, there are questions to answer in the areas of spelling, word study, punctuation and grammar. The 150 days of questions are broken into 15 units of 10 days. Each unit has a focus, which will help pupils to improve their English skills as well as their knowledge about how language works.
This is a great resource in for the classroom. It can be quite challenging at the beginning of the year but using consistently definitely gives the results. My class love the themed approach and there is race each time we use it to say what it is. I used it this year and last year and look forward to using it in the future.Gillian Connolly
I am sure that many teachers out there have used Prim-Ed’s New Wave Mental Maths books. If so, you might be interested in the New Wave English in practice books from Prim-Ed that basically use a very similar approach. The books cover different areas of the English curriculum and are a basic practice book. They start off in 1st Class and run all the way up to 6th Class, again in a similar way to the Mental Maths books. The areas that children can test themselves on are spelling, vocab and grammar. The daily tests are designed for each child to complete in a set amount of time. This approach will suit teachers that enjoy using repetition as a teaching methodology but might not suit the teacher who is more focused on active learning. However, a teacher can pick and choose which areas they would like to focus on as the books are designed using a numbered format as opposed to a “Day one/Monday” format. Pupil record sheets have been included in each book to help children keep note and monitor their own progress by using self-assessment.Anseo.net
