“Word of the Week” is part of the Academy’s ongoing strategy to improve students’ literacy. Students are being taught the importance of language and the need for a good vocabulary, both for their school work and as an essential life skill. There is an Academy W.O.W. which is displayed around school and on the website, and its use is reinforced by VMG tutors and in school assemblies. The word will link to the assembly topic for that week and is designed to make students confident in their use of a range of complex words and their meanings.

“As vocabulary is reduced, so are the number of feelings you can express, the number of events you can describe, the number of the things you can identify. Man grows by language.” – Sheri S. Tepper
