Review

  • Review of the Oxford School Dictionary - “The new and improved range of vocabulary included is more in line with the expectations of the new curriculum. The teachers (particularly in upper Key Stage 2) view them as a valuable resource, the children use them to improve their writing or knowledge and understanding constantly. The children access them on an almost daily basis- they enjoy using the dictionaries to find out the meaning of unfamiliar words or to check their spellings. They particularly enjoy using a thesaurus to find alternative, more adventurous vocabulary to use in their writing.”
