Usborne Key Skills is a new series of practice and revision books that support and consolidate the English and Maths that children learn on the National Curriculum. The series is organised by age, and the activities in each book will build confidence in understanding the Maths and written English studied by each age group.
Notes for grown-ups explain the concepts that are presented and practised in each activity. Colourful characters illustrate the laminated pages, which can be wiped clean so children can practise the activities again and again.
Key Skills for age 5-6
Key Skills for age 6-7
Key Skills for age 7-8
Supporting the British National Curriculum
Usborne Key Skills books support the British National Curriculum Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.
They explain the concepts and rules of Maths and English and also provide plenty of practice in calculation, reading and writing.
In the back of the books there are answers (for maths books), a glossary (for grammar titles), quizzes and a practice page.
