Building Students' Word Power
'As names have power, words have power. Words can light fires in the minds of men. Words can wring tears from the hardest hearts.'
Patrick Rothfuss, The Name of the Wind
Every week, students will be introduced to a new and exciting word which they can use in their written and verbal learning during lessons and around the school. Every time they use this word accurately, our students will be rewarded with an achievement point to celebrate their commitment to improving their vocabulary.
Attached, we have provided a PowerPoint for the remainder of this half term, detailing the definitions of the words chosen for each half term. Please can you use this to promote the use of these words, at home with your children, to support us with improving literacy at Holloway School? We will update this termly, in the future.â
