There are currently 3 types of cloze for the Bucks Test.
1. Word Bank cloze: Passage with a number of words missing. A word bank given above the passage (with more words than are missing)
2. Stacking cloze: Passage with words missing, where each missing word should be 4 or 5 words are stacked on top of each other in a vertical list. Child chooses correct word from that stack.
3. Find the missing word cloze: Passage with words missing, above each missing word is a bank of 5 words in a boxed horizontal line. Child chooses one word from the line.
Some books use a cloze where letters are missing from the word and the child fills in the gaps to produce the correct word eg C__NA__ word is CANAL but this does not lend itself to a multiple choice answer sheet so will probably not appear in the Bucks Test.
Copy passages form childrens books and newspaper (First Post) take out some words, substitute as above and you will have some good practice.

Lots of reading discussing words. Make up your own questions for synonyms and antonyms. Play scrabble - allow your child to use a dictionary.
