    This new edition of the Oxford Primary Dictionary supports the curriculum's higher vocabulary expectations by including more varied vocabulary; words such as chortle, cacophony, amulet and vlog are new, along with others from a wide range of areas such as animals (e.g. narwhal, sabre-toothed), history (e.g.longship, palaeontoglist), mythology (e.g. cyclops, selkie) and space and science fiction (e.g. spacewalk, teleport). It also now features a unique selection of
    fictional words for creatures or places from children's reading and writing, for example hobbit, Muggle and bandersnatch. All the entries have clear and simple definitions with word classes and inflections given in full. Children will discover example sentences from the authors they love to read, such
    as Cressida Cowell, Roald Dahl and J. K. Rowling. 'Try also' guides at the top of pages help to locate tricky-to-find words in the alphabet such as from 'f' to 'ph', word origins are given in 'Did you know?' panels, and Spelling Alerts flag up tricky spellings. The updated supplement provides grammar and punctuation information to help children with their reading and writing. It is the ideal dictionary for boosting reading skills and building word power. Companion to the new updated edition of
    the Oxford Primary Thesaurus for all young writers. www.oxfordschooldictionaries.com for free downloadable activities.
