PREFACE TO STANDARD III.
This Book continues the plan carried out in Standards I. and II., and the advice given there as to the preparation of new work applies equally here.
As a preparation for the “ Literature Examination” of Standards IV.–VI., a few explanations, to be learnt by the pupils, are introduced after Monday's Lessons.
It has been thought advisable to include the Pronoun in the Grammar for this Standard.
In Geography little more could be done, in some of the lessons, than give a skeleton, leaving the teacher to clothe it by means of oral lessons.
The Arithmetical Problems are in some cases beyond the scope of an ordinary third standard boy, without he has a little help ; but much may be done to prepare for this part of the examination by the constant working out of problems with the class on the blackboard. It will be frequently necessary for the teacher to indicate the chain of reasoning by which the answer to some of the problems is to be arrived at, so that the pupil may not hopelessly “ stick in the bog ” at night, when he will, as a general rule, have no one to refer to.
There is an immense difference between the Standards of the various Inspectors in the matter of Arithmetic as well as in Dictation. Out of the mass of problems which teachers have kindly sent for use in this work, many of the difficult ones—only fit for Pupil-teachershave been omitted, and some that have been retained considerably exceed the requirements of the Code as set forth in the "Instructions to Inspectors.” Boys will be all the better for being worked up to this high standard, but it should not be required for a pass.
The (*) indicates that the sum has been given by one of H.M. Inspectors, in an examination.

THE BRITISH ISLANDS. The United Kingdom consists of two large islands, called Great Britain and Ire'-land, and a great number of smaller ones.
Great Britain is the largest island in Europe, and consists of Scot'-land, or North Britain, in the north, and England and Wales in the south.
The smaller island is called Ireland. It is separated from England by the Irish Sea.
These islands are all situated in the Atlantic, towards the uorth-west of Europe, being separated from it by the North Sea and the English Channel. Their total area is about 122,000
England is nearly as large as Scotland and Ireland together. Lesson 3.–Wednesday Morning. Work these Sums.

Lesson 4.-Thursday.-Grammar. Learn and Write.
GRAMMAR is the science which teaches us about WORDS and SENTENCES.
Words are made up of letters. In the English language there are twenty-six letters, divided into vowels and consonants.
The letters a, e, i, o, u are vowels; w and y are vowels when they do not begin a word or syllable.
All the other letters are consonants.
A syllable is a word, or part of a word, sounded by one single
effort of the voice.
Every syllable must contain a vowel. Ex. 1. Put a line under the vowels : Thus, pan. Mary caught John. The pig grunts. The wind blows very strongly. Go and spin your top. Sugar is sweet.
Ex. 2. Divide into syllables : Thus, ba-by. Chimney, servant, Africa. On entering school remember to remain silent. The talkative parrot whistled a merry tune. Lesson 5.-Friday Morning. Work these Sums. £ 8. d. £ 8. d.
