Word Of The Week

Here at St.Cuthberts we aim to promote the use of a wider range of vocabulary amongst our students. Having “word rich” students often provides the vital difference between school failure and success. One of the ways of tackling this is through our “Word of the Week” initiative.  Each week a curriculum area of the school selects a word from their own specialism which is both relevant and challenging to be shared across the curriculum. Form tutors deliver a weekly presentation on the word to their students during form time and the presentation is also shown on all the TV screens around school.

For this half-term we will again focus on COMMAND WORDS.

These are the words that appear in exam or assessment tasks which tell you how to answer the question.
