Word of the Week

This term we are starting a new initiative to develop the vocabulary of our children through the ‘Word of the Week’ (WOW). Research has shown that the wider a child’s vocabulary the easier the child can access new learning.

Every week students will be introduced to a new word, which they will use in their written and verbal work during lessons and around the school.

Please help promote the use of the words at home with your children by talking about the word, its meaning and other similar words. 

 

KS1 WOW: 
Devour
Meaning: to eat quickly, hungrily.

KS2 WOW:
Relinquish
Meaning: voluntarily cease claim or give up control.
