In this daily practice workbook you will be able to develop your ability to use English. Each day, you will

have 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 to improve your English

skills as well as your knowledge about how language works.

At the completion of each set of 10 days, you will have the opportunity to test what you learnt by doing

some revision questions.

Your daily scores are recorded in the bubble at the bottom of each day. These daily scores can be transferred

onto the pupil record sheets at the front of your book. This will give an overview of your performance for the

whole school year.

Be sure to read each question carefully before you answer it. If you find a question too difficult, move on to

the next one. If you have time at the end you can go back to the one you haven’t done.
