An invaluable teaching book.What's great about this book and really makes it stand out from other books on the market is that it specifically concentrates on story writing in detail as opposed to trying to superficially cover all areas of National Curriculum English. It is therefore, a thorough and detailed guide. It gives the child a real knowledge of how to go about writing a story, step by step. This is done in a clear, concise and fun way, which children really understand. My child is now confident writing stories and even her teacher has remarked on the improvement in her writing.

A must have book for anyone struggling with a reluctant writer. An absolutely brilliant
series of books, what a find! A real wealth of information -
Really Useful. The book has lots of simple exercises to help make improve punctuation and grammar. It is useful for primary school children. I have found it very helpful. The book was sent within 48 hours and arrived in good condition. By a customer
What a wonderful book! Improve Your English includes everything a child and even an adult needs to know about English grammar. The first half of the 140+ pages teach vital skills, such as, using capital letters, nouns, adjectives, adverbs, pronouns, prepositions, direct and indirect speech, colons and semi colons, commas and apostrophes, making sentences more interesting by using sub clauses, connectives, complex and compound sentences, explaining homophones, metaphors and similes and much more.
I have never before come across such a comprehensive book on English grammar. Improve Your English presents grammatical concepts in a way that is very easy to understand. The second half of the book has exercises to test what has been learnt. The answers are even at the back.
I fully recommend this book to any parent whose child's written work is let down by spelling, punctuation and grammatical mistakes. With a book like this on the market there is no excuse for a child to lose marks in exams from use of bad English. By a customer
Finally a scheme that actually works! I first read a review about how wonderful this reading scheme was in the newspaper, so I had high expectations. However, now I have seen the results for myself I am certainly not disappointed. This is an absolute must for any parent who wants to teach their child to read fast. Instead of the nonsense rhymes and phrases kids are subjected to in other schemes, these books are written with proper stories, based around the adventures of a very believable boy called Sam and his friends. The stories are truly heart warming, humorous and really come alive. Most importantly, as my child read the stories over and over again, sounding out the phonic words, his reading came on leaps and bounds. This scheme is easily understandable, clearly set out in bold font. The black and white line drawings are wonderful and great for kids who like to colour in pictures. By a customer
Amazing value for money. I can’t believe what fabulous value for money this scheme is. You are getting over 100 A4 pages packed full of phonic stories, games and activities enforcing the sounds. Compared to other reading schemes where for the same price you get 20 pages in a small square book – there is just no comparison. No wonder this scheme actually works. By a customer
Highly recommended. This is an extremely unique scheme that is successfully teaching
my daughter to read. She has been struggling to learn to read for a number of years,
but seems to finally be making a breakthrough with her reading using these books.
The early books are packed with activities, games and fun phrases and sentences
based around ‘Nan’s pets’ -
A Really Unique Book. If getting your child to work through a maths books is a struggle, then I would really recommend ‘Maths Land School’. This is another wonderful book by Guinea Pig Education. Set in ‘Maths Land School’ the fun cartoon character pupils, such as, Daring Donna Decimal, Sam Subtract, Patsy Perfect Percentage and Amit Angle, teach the maths basics in a fun and humorous way. Including questions, such as, “Doubtful Darren divides 63 delicious doughnuts between his 7 desperate dogs. How many doughnuts can each dog eat?” This book covers many important mathematical concepts required at KS2 and 3, from adding, subtraction, multiplication and division to fractions, decimals, percentages, measurements and angles. As with all Guinea Pig’s titles, this book is great value, with 104 pages packed full of learning and a comprehensive answer booklet at the back. This really is a maths book with a difference. This book succeeds in making maths fun! By a customer
3 Really Useful Books. I have found these books to be a real godsend. They really show parents and children what is required of their writing at KS2 and 3. Each book shows exactly how to write a story, how to write persuasively, for example, writing a discursive essay and how to write informatively, such as, writing letters, reports and reviews. They are extremely inspiring books, giving a wealth of examples, model answers and ideas that children can use to inspire them in their own writing. These books are invaluable resources. They provide the child with a solid foundation in their writing, which will stand them in good stead for GCSE’s and beyond – where the ability to write in these different styles is vital to gain good grades. These books are a must buy I would have thought. By a customer
