KS2 Word of the Week- 4.5.20 (Rhine)

Week 3! If you haven't joined in yet, please join us this week. Learning new words is so important and also quite good fun too.

Congratulations to last week's KS2 winning sentence written by Niah! Look out for your prize in the post :)

I hope you enjoyed last week's word of the week video and have been trying your hardest to use last week's word in lots of different ways to impress those around you with your growing vocabulary. 

We have loved reading your sentences; it really has been the highlight of our week! We hope to see even more of you getting involved this week. I think KS2 managed more sentences on their blogs than KS1 this week! Well done! Can you do the same again this week?

This week is an audio clip for you to listen to (at the bottom of this blog). This audio clip works best on a laptop or desktop computer. If you have difficulties opening on an iPad, please try a laptop or desktop if possible. Once you have taken part in the clip, see your challenges below. 

Here are the resources you will need to see whilst listening to the audio:

Challenge 1: We challenge you to comment in the comments section below with your very best sentence that uses our word of the week. Each week we shall select the best KS2 sentence as our weekly winner.


Challenge 2: This week, you may like you to continue building your own ‘Word Collectors Booklet’. The first page of your booklet is available to download below if you need it. You should complete one side of the page and then next week you can complete the other half of the page with the next word. The idea is that over the weeks you will collect lots of words on your collector pages, which can be put together in a ‘Word Collector Booklet’!

Now challenge yourself and your grown-ups to use this week's word in different ways throughout the week!

Happy word learning!
