All the Schofield & Sims dictionaries stand alone as excellent sources of reference. Supporting the aims of the National Curriculum, the dictionaries and word books widen children’s vocabulary and improve their reading and writing skills. They have been carefully graded so that each builds on the earlier one – thus providing a natural progression.
The words included have been carefully chosen to reflect contemporary usage and interests, and also to provide full support for children as they explore classic texts.
