Synthesis & Transformation Primary 6 PSLE

Synopsis

Each Synthesis and Transformation question has twice the weighting compared to all theother grammar questions  in the English Language paper of  the Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE). Thus, pupils who wish to get good grades for the English paper needto do well  in this section. In addition, pupils also need to know how to combine two or more  sentences  aptly  in  order  to  obtain  high  scores  for  the  comprehension  and composition components.  


This Synthesis  and Transformation book  aims  to  give pupils  the practice  they need  toproperly  learn  how  to  join  sentences  using  appropriate  connectors  and  to  rephrase complex sentences. 


Check out the special components in this book:



  • 30 Practices, each focusing on a different type of sentence manipulation, serve as drills to allow pupils to  familiarise themselves with the structure of such sentences. Each practice  comprises  5  standard  questions  and  10  challenging  questions. This  format allows the pupils to practise and acquire the fundamental skills in that particular type of  sentence manipulation before moving on  to master  the  skills needed  in  tackling more  challenging  questions.  These  practices  are  grouped  into  5 units  to  facilitate pupils’ learning of similar grammar devices. 

  • 5 Revision Exercises, one at the end of each unit, test the pupils’ understanding of the entire unit as well as permit them to further practise what they have learnt. 

  • The Ultimate Challenge unit helps prepare pupils for the more advanced questions in  school  and  national  examinations.  This  segment  also  gives  them  the  added advantage of being able to both comprehend such sentences and utilise them in their compositions. 

  • A Final Revision section with 4 tests at the end of the book gives pupils a chance to check their own progress as well as gauge how they will fare in an actual examination. 


As  the  adage  goes,  “Practice makes  perfect”.  By mastering  the  art  of  Synthesis  and Transformation, pupils can look forward not only to attaining full marks for this section in the PSLE, they can also pick up much valued skills which will aid them in understanding English texts and using the English language ß uently in their everyday lives.
