As part of our drive to raise standards in literacy and broaden pupils’ vocabulary, each week the Academy holds a Word of the Week event.
In their Mentor groups pupils examine a new word including its meaning and origins. They are then invited to demonstrate their understanding of the word by producing a piece of work which shows how the word can be used in context. This might be a piece of written work, an image, a cartoon or a video for example.
