In order to improve the vocabulary within our children, this year we have implemented Mrs Wordsmith Powerful Words project into our weekly timetable. Mrs Wordsmith exists to take every child on an epic word learning adventure that will make them smarter. Mrs Wordsmith products support accelerated progress in reading and writing for pupils, by extending their receptive and expressive vocabulary.
The project introduces 15 minutes per day of additional vocabulary instruction in class, focusing on Tier 2 words found in Mrs Wordsmith materials. The goal of the project is to teach children 120 new words each term over the course of 5 terms. At the end of each term, pupils will take a short vocabulary test that Mrs Wordsmith prepared for them, so that their teacher will be able to keep track of their progress.
