Words of the Week

Words of the Week

Each Monday, Wednesday & Friday we will be sending out some interesting words for you to talk to your children about via Marvellous Me. The words will also be listed on this page.  Each word will have an accompanying image, definition and example sentence.  


  • Talk to your child about each word and what they mean.
  • Can your child think of a sentence they could use the word in?
  • Can you remember to use the new words in your talking at home?
