We are pleased to introduce our students to a new programme at the Academy where they will be challenged to develop and extend their vocabulary through learning and using a specific word each week.
‘Word of the Week’ sees students being introduced to a selected word each Monday morning. Students will be expected to learn to read the word correctly, spell it and understand its meaning. In developing their vocabulary further they will also be taught further words of similar meaning and given examples of word use.
Each week we will link parents to the ‘Word of the Week’ along with our learning resources through our app, twitter and website to enable you to discuss this with your child when they get home.
We hope that by linking teachers, students and parents in this way that we are better equipping our young people for life-long educational success.
Each week the most recent addition to ‘Word of the Week’ will appear at the top of the list shown below. Please click the word to open the associated learning resources.
