Active English

Develop literacy skills with engaging text types.

A series of activity books for Classes 1 to 6, Active English is firmly based on text types and places special emphasis on critical and visual literacy. The chosen text excerpts are from a variety of mixed text types (including poems, information reports, narratives, expositions, descriptions, fables, personal recounts) and are meaningful, authentic and support learning across the curriculum.
