Key areas covered include:-
Communication, language and literacy
Grammar and punctuation
Talk for learning

Teaching in a multilingual classroom
Written by highly experienced authors and former government advisors with frontline teaching, school management and teacher training experience, each manageable chapter provides the busy teacher with indispensible advice and guidance as well as opportunities to reflect upon current practice in the classroom.
This second edition reflects changes in government policy and gives greater attention to systematic synthetic phonics, assessment, drama and talk for writing, and is closely related to the changing curriculum for primary English.
English 5-11 will be an invaluable resource to all trainee and practising teachers interested in teaching English in an accessible, contemporary and dynamic way.
