"QUEST": "Oxford English Quest" is an exciting new English resource with quality complete texts for shared reading and comprehension, and activities to improve the quality of children's writing. Carefully differentiated texts include short stories by top authors (including Kevin Crossley-Holland and Adele Geras) and non-fiction. Children will learn techniques to apply to their own writing and differentiated activities practise these techniques in preparation for extended writing tasks. Clear learning outcomes are sign-posted with direction for consolidation or extension as required. Quest provides an excellent grounding in literacy and is perfect preparation for national tests. The units cluster objectives under themes to contextualise learning and help children remember and apply skills and knowledge. The structure fits into medium term plans and supports cross-curricular approaches to teaching. Each year group has a CD-ROM with Powerpoint texts for shared work, a Companion to demonstrate all required text types, and a Pupil Book with differentiated activities for comprehension, grammar, speaking and listening, and drama.
The Teacher's Resource Kit contains the CD-ROM, clear overviews of the unit objectives, and comprehensive teaching notes. "eQUEST": Using highly motivating computer games technology, "eQuest" is a CD-ROM with activities for speaking and listening. Children work in groups to solve missions, using higher-order thinking skills and group work. The mission content is cross-curricular, providing optional planning links to Quest, with historical, scientific and geographical content. The easy-to-use Teacher's Guide explains how to structure and organise sessions and follows the guidelines and objectives set out in the QCA speaking and listening guidance.
