Word of the Week

Each week the school has a 'Word of the Week!'  This is chosen by the children and shared with the rest of the School every Monday in assembly.  Throughout the week, the children have the opportunity to add post-it notes with their definitions, antonyms, synonyms, sentences etc based on the Word of the Week to one of the many posters displayed around the school.  This word is then reviewed the following Monday and we begin again.
