WOW - Word of the WeekPosted on: 15/09/2020
As a school we are focusing on improving our students literacy development as much as possible.
To support this, we have introduced a new initiative called ‘Word of the Week - WoW’.
During tutor time on a Friday morning, students in Years 7-10 are given a new word to remember and use during the following week.
Staff encourage the use of this word within lessons and through homework as much as possible. If a student uses the WoW in its correct context they are awarded 1 House point.
Our aim is to increase students vocabulary knowledge and understanding whilst raising their own level of literacy. The words that will be used for this term are listed below.
