Vocabulary development-Star Words

We are very proud of our focus on developing vocabulary in our school to support the children's writing and oracy. 

In every classroom in all year groups, you will find our Star Words on display linked to our Topic, Science, English and Maths. The reading, meaning and context of these words are directly taught to the children and they are actively encouraged to use and apply them in their learning.

Likewise in Reflections, the children are also taught  new words and  meanings in order to enhance their learning and understanding of the key concept from worship that week and they rehearse and use this word in 'Talk Trios'.

We have used professional development training from 'School 21' in London to develop our teaching of vocabulary.
