For Year 11 English students, Sigma provides a series of eleven write-on NCEA Level 1 ‘single-standard’ workbooks - one workbook for each Level 1 achievement standard. Ranging between 50-80 pages, Sigma’s English NCEA study resources provide core skills building exercises as well as many excellent New Zealand based film, short story, visual, poetry, and drama resources for students to practise on.

Each workbook features an introduction to help students understand the standard, exercises to reinforce the English skills necessary for NCEA exam success, New Zealand based literary resources for students to practise on, examples, mock exams and course work, including essays, speech text and  NCEA creative writing, to model the standards required to pass as well as a full set of answers.

Sigma’s English Workbook NCEA Series features:

  • Detailed instruction boxes teaching the key skills for the achievement standard with worked examples
  • Plenty of practice tasks for classwork or homework
  • A comprehensive set of task answeres
  • Model exam answers showing reasons for awarding grades
  • Guided writing space for producing assessment work
  • Spread the cost – buy only relevant workbooks each term
  • Excellent for external assessment revision

For Teachers

Sigma’s NCEA English series meets the demand for a dedicated workbook for each NCEA Level 1 achievement standard, as classes only need to study 5-6 standards to gain the credits required in Year 11.

These workbooks are great for independent study or they can be used by the whole class as core classroom material. You can lay the foundations for improved school-wide English results with Sigma NCEA workbooks.  Sample books are available for teachers.

 For Parents

The NCEA English workbook series provides one workbook for each Level 1 Achievement Standard, so you can spread the cost and buy only the workbooks you need each term.  These workbooks are great for individual NCEA study help. The activities are interesting, absorbing and fun for your child to do!  Now you can do something really positive to assist your child in their first NCEA year.

See our catalogue below for the series and see the individual book details pages for sample pages and content lists.
