Each week, we identify one word which is launched in our collective learning session on a Monday. Students will discover the definition of the word and how to use it in context, both verbally and in their written work. In lessons, teachers will, where appropriate, use and encourage students to use the Word of the Week. Over time, the Word of the Week strategy will build all students’ vocabulary and develop their understanding of the English language.
Please see below for this week’s Word of the Week:
Abysmal–If you describe a situation or the condition of something as abysmal, you think that it is very bad or poor in quality.
