Synthesis & Transformation Upper Primary

Synopsis

Each Synthesis and Transformation question has twice the weighting compared to all the


other 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 need to 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 to properly learn how to join sentences using appropriate connectors and to rephrase complex sentences.  


Check out the special components in this book:



  • 33 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. These exercises are grouped into 6 units to facilitate pupils’ learning of similar grammar devices. 

  • Simple and concise notes at the start of each practice briefly explain how the synthesis or transformation is carried out. These are paired with examples that clearly illustrate how the sentences are combined or rephrased for pupils to emulate when completing the practice exercise.

  • 6 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 two 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 fluently in their everyday lives.
