The CCHS Word of the Week
This year, we are highlighting a 'Word of the Week' to help support our whole school literacy strategy on reading and to help stimulate the learning of new vocabulary.
Each week we are publishing a new word, its definition, origins and an example of its use in a sentence.
Teachers award students with PROUD+ points if they use the 'Word of the Week' accurately within lessons, and wherever possible throughout the school day, to help widen the students' vocabulary.
We also encourage parents and carers to challenge students with correctly spelling the word and using it accurately in their conversations at home.
