Mrs Wordsmith

Each week, we will have Mrs Wordsmith lessons which give us the chance to learn ambitious, new vocabulary. You will be amazed to see and hear the brilliant vocabulary children are learning in school so do ask them about the new words they have learnt! Learning this new vocabulary will help us with our comprehension of words in our reading as well as improving our writing.


Up until Christmas, our words will be based on different settings as you can see below.
