Comprehensive Transfer Test English preparation for Primary 5/6.

The focus of this 30 page booklet is on comprehension and grammar.  These are both essential skills needed for the Northern Irish AQE and GL Transfer Tests.   Comprehension is the number one area that parents say their child struggles with when they begin practice papers of the AQE and GL tests.  This booklet contains short comprehension passages with focused questions based on the types of questions asked in the Transfer Test.  Children are not asked to write in sentences in the Transfer Test.  Questions are multiple choice answers or require them to write short phrases or words.

Transfer Test comprehension always includes recognising and finding nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs within a passage.  This skill is often new to children when they start practice papers.  Teach them the techniques early and the papers will be less daunting!

Included:

• 12 comprehension passages with 10 Transfer style questions for each passage.
