How do the books work?
‘Key Words’ are the most frequently occurring words in the English language. Research has shown that very few of these key English words form a very high proportion of those in everyday use.
100 Key Words make up half of all those we read and write. This essential vocabulary is carefully introduced, practised and developed throughout the scheme.
Key Words with Peter and Jane has 12 levels, each with 3 books: a, b and c.
Series a: gradually introduces and repeats new words.
Series b: provides further practise of these same words but in a different context and with different illustrations.
Series c: invites children to start writing the words and introduces reading using phonics, enabling children to read increasingly difficult words.
