Literacy - Language Specificity
Understanding the language you use and being able to find exactly the right word to describe a situation, event, person, place or feeling is vitally important in communicating your ability as a reader and writer.

By stretching your vocabulary and learning new words you are increasing your brain power and equipping yourself with the vital tools needed for effective communication.

This year, you will be learning two new words each week and between 10 and 12 words every half term.

Where possible, try and use these words frequently in your every day speech and writing. In this way, the words will be embedded into your vocabulary and you will feel confident and assured in your use of them.

The key words for this half term are;

Week 1: Consequence and Relevant
Week 2: Dominant and Initial
Week 3: Provisional and Tradition
Week 4: Reaction and Sufficient
