Ambitious Vocabulary Wall

To promote the use of ambitious vocabulary in spoken and written language, each class will select a word to become their 'Word of the Day'. The word may come from the guided reading or reciprocal reading sessions, a word that a child has come across in their reading books or subjects from the wider curriculum. Time is spent discussing each word in turn and the children are encouraged to use their 'Words of the Day' within their learning.

 

In each Star Award assembly, each class will share their chosen 'Word of the Week' along with the meaning and you can see what the children have selected so far this school year below.
