Jump Aboard is a new six-level course for primary school children. It builds on the strengths of a well-structured syllabus and the benefits of communicative teaching to offer a course with an attractive modern design that is straightforward to teach and fun to learn from.
The motivating stories, systematic development of skills and well-principled materials all contribute to making the course ideal for the primary sector. Jump Aboard is a complete, fully-supported course that works with the teacher and develops with the learner.
The Jump Ahead Readers accompany the course. There are two readers per level, each of which recycles grammar and vocabulary in new contexts.
- Systematic coverage of phonics and spelling
- Songs, poems and chants develop natural intonation
- Cross-curricular pages link to school subjects with enjoyable texts and personalised tasks
- ‘Your page’ encourages independent learning
- End-of-unit stories encourage reading for pleasure
- At higher levels, true stories replace the character-based stories
- Now with CD-ROMs
The Jump Aboard Student's Book contains 111 full-colour pages which provide a fun and interesting approach. There is an exciting adventure story at the start of each unit, cross-curricular pages with a variety of subjects and a review unit after every two units giving children and teachers a chance to monitor progress and development.
The Jump Aboard Workbook has projects about the real world which tie in with the real world activity pages in the Student's Book. It also provides consolidation activities, projects, handwriting practice pages, a special phonics syllabus and a complete word list.
The Jump Aboard Teacher’s Book contains step-by-step procedures with full answer keys, plus a grammar reference section with photocopiable practice activities. Useful teaching techniques and information are also provided such as explaining how to correct student errors, when to use the Workbook, warm-up activities and helpful tips.
Grammar Practice Book
The Jump Aboard Grammar Practice Book provides 12 organised units along with a Review section after every two units which allows pupils to consolidate and develop knowledge. Designed to be tackled independently, either for homework or quiet time in the classroom, it provides children with the opportunity to reinforce material learnt.
