At the request of Key Stage 3 teachers, Schofield & Sims has rebranded two key series - English Skills and Mental Arithmetic - for use at Key Stage 3 and beyond. Perfect for recovery work and for building functional skills in English, Essential English gives each student intensive practice that is matched exactly to their ability level, supporting differentiation and personalised learning. The series enables students to succeed in skill areas where they have previously failed and widens written vocabulary, helping them to gain proficiency in other subjects, both academic and vocational.

  • Essential English Skills 1 is for pupils who can write short simple sentences and questions using simple vocabulary and punctuation. They have mastered the basics of reading and writing, but may not always spell words correctly. This book helps students learn to: extend sentences and write compound sentences, check sense and grammatical agreement, punctuate sentences and questions, find alternatives for everyday words and make correct spelling choices.

  • Essential English Skills 2 is for pupils who can use simple conjunctions to write compound sentences. They can spell correctly most high-frequency words and use spelling strategies to spell those that are less familiar. This book helps students learn to: use conjunctions (while when because), open sentences in different ways, chose words for impact and precision, adapt some spellings when adding a suffix and use apostrophes in shortened forms.

  • Essential English Skills 3 is for pupils who can write simple and compound sentences and use simple conjunctions. They recognise word classes, choose vocabulary carefully and, when reminded, use punctuation accurately. Their knowledge of prefixes and suffixes helps them to spell unfamiliar words. This book helps students learn to: use a wider range of conjunctions, use relative clauses, vary sentence structure, use language imaginatively and apply knowledge of word roots.
  • Essential English Skills 4 is for pupils who can write compound and some complex sentences using conjunctions, phrases, adverbials and varied sentence starters. Able to spell correctly most medium frequency words, they can identify root words to help them spell and understand unfamiliar words. This book helps students learn to: experiment with sentence construction, adapt sentences to suit different purposes, use commas to separate phrases, set out and punctuate direct speech, correct errors in the use of apostrophes and apply knowledge of the word origin and roots.
  • Essential English Skills 5 is for pupils who can write complex sentences using subordinate clauses, reorder phrases and begin to adapt their writing for different purposes. They use punctuation consistently and apply their knowledge of word roots and origins when spelling topic words. This book helps students learn to: control complex sentences confidently, manipulate clauses for effect, express subtle distinction of meaning, form conditional and passive sentences and use known words to spell unfamiliar ones.
  • Essential English Skills 6 is an extension book for pupils who have successfully completed Essential English Skills 5. It enables them to fully employ, reinforce and build on the skills and knowledge already acquired and prepares them for highly effective use of functional skills in English. This book helps students learn to: write clear and unambiguous sentences, vary sentence structure for purpose and effect, use Standard English appropriately, explore subtle differences in punctuation, match language to purpose and context and use known words to understand new ones.
