Basic Skills - Language & Mathematics Year 5 (Basic Skills No. 55)
Basic Skills Language and Maths Year 5 is designed to help children learn the fundamentals in Language and Mathematics. Children improve their skills by the systematic study and disciplined practice offered in the many challenging exercises on each page or set of work.

The Mathematics section on each page aims to increase powers of numeracy by developing speed and accuracy. Some problems may be above the general level of Year 5 but can be solved by selecting possible answers to see if any fit. Thus by trial and error, and persistence, the correct answer can be found.
The Language section often involves a multiple choice of answers. A student should not be encouraged to make wild guesses at answers he or she is unsure of. If there is uncertainty about an answer, then the dictionary should be consulted.
The answer section is placed in the middle of the book and can be removed by a parent.
Peter Howard is an ex-primary school principal and author of many widely used school teaching aids and textbooks. He would like to thank the publisher, and author Jim Coroneos for help and advice in the preparation of the Mathematics section.
