KS2 Word of the Week 01.06.20 (Rhine)

 A new word learning format for Term 6.

Well done to Elliot, Flora and Rowan for their KS2 winning sentences before half term. Look out for your prizes in the post :)

This term, we would like to help you carry on using new vocabulary at home, as we feel it is such an important part of your learning. Having lots of words in your word banks will not only help you when you are younger but when you are older too. Words do not simply fall from the sky and into our brains (wouldn’t that be brilliant though!), we have to learn new words and use them whenever we can.

This certainly doesn’t have to be a chore, because aren’t words absolutely wonderful? There are so many different words that we still haven’t learnt. Long words, short words, words that are tricky to say, words that can be used in lots of different ways. It is no secret that I love words and am learning new words every day, even as an adult.

This term, instead of recording an audio, I shall be setting a word of the week together with a list of activities for you to learn this new word. Maybe an adult could do the activities with you, or why don’t you become the teacher and use the activities to teach everyone else in your household?
