One of our focus areas this term is on vocabulary and the use of higher level words in spoken language, writing and comprehension. Each week the children from Y2 up have 5 key words they will investigate and try to use. We look at word meanings, prefixes, suffixes and the roots of words. The children (and staff) are learning something new each day.
Our message to parents is : never ‘dumb down’ your language when you speak with your child. Use tricky/higher level words in context so that your child is able to understand
