Grade Suitability of Workbooks

Please note that we generally do not indicate the grade on the cover of each book. There are a few exceptions, such as the Grade R Activity Book and the Trumpeter Numeracy workbooks.

The reason for not indicating the grade on the cover is that schools differ in the level that they present to their learners. However, we have indicated a grade suitability for each title on the order form and in the description of each workbook on this website.

Please note:
1. The Afrikaans…geniet dit! range starts from Grade 3 (Werkboek 1) and goes up to Grade 7 (Werkboek 5).
2. The Essential Spelling range is a continuation of the Simply Phonics/ Simply the Best Phonics ranges and starts from Grade 3 (Workbook 1).
3. The Simply English range is intended for children in Grade 3+ requiring extra consolidation with English exercises. The material and font size of Simply English Workbook 1 is not suitable for a Grade 1 learner.
