Description

Especially designed for children aged 10 and over, this clear, comprehensive dictionary contains all the features essential for upper primary use and much more besides, from homework support via Collins Word Wizard, to brainteaser quizzes and internet links. Collins Concise School Dictionary has been especially designed to support the language and literacy needs of children aged 10+. Fully supportive of the National Curriculum, it includes vocabulary for cross-curricular subjects such as ICT, Science and Geography. Collins Word Wizard provides even more support for key skills such as grammar, writing and spelling, as well as tips on using the Internet and fascinating facts about new and unusual words. The Dictionary develops and reinforces essential dictionary features such as extended entries with multiple definitions, parts of speech (verb, noun, etc), derivations and inflexions (plurals, comparative forms, tenses of a verb,etc), guide words and related words. It provides etymologies for words from both modern languages and cultures and more ancient origins. Synonyms and antonyms are highlighted for common and overused words. Word families are grouped together in word family boxes. Common prefixes and suffixes are highlighted and defined. Usage tips, fascinating facts and word games are found throughout the dictionary to stimulate the user.
