Each entry contains simple, easy-to-read numbered meanings, and word classes, and example sentences. Tinted panels throughout the text focus on overused words, words belonging to the same family, and key language topics (such as connectives or apostrophes). Another unique feature is the example sentences by well-known children's authors, such as Dick King-Smith, Jacqueline Wilson, and Roald Dahl. These show the words actually in use to reinforce meaning but they also hook children in to using language effectively. Unique to Oxford, they take children beyond looking up a word for spelling or meaning - and into thinking about reading and writing independently.

Together, these are invaluable navigation tools for children practising their alphabet skills. Guidewords also appear on every page. Extra material at the back is accurately levelled for the curriculum at this age.

By simply identifying the first vowel sound, the speller is sent instantly to the page where the problem word is found. The easy-to-use reference system will tempt them to use more interesting words in their writing, enabling them to produce work that they can be proud of. Both patterns and irregularities are highlighted in the dictionary so that pupils learn to spell incidentally. The dictionary includes a clear step-by-step guide to effective teaching with the dictionary, over 20,000 words, a comprehensive list of commonly misspelt words and further learning strategies for spelling.
