    - Excellent classroom resource - Great linkage between strands of the English curriculum - Attractive, well-laid out sheets/pages - Love the inclusion of the different types of editing and proofreading checklists for the particular text types - Easily used to aid a teacher's planning - Would happily use as a pupil book in conjunction with main reading scheme and novels - Allows for individual, partner and group work - Will encourage correct handwriting size as space provided requires a smaller, neater script which you would aim to have developed at this particular stage
