Word Aware

Word Aware is a strategy we use across the whole school to encourage the children to acquire new language and vocabulary.  Before each topic teachers think about vocabulary relevant to the subject being covered and split this into Goldilocks words (words which a specific to the subject and will be newly acquired) and Anchor words (words which can be transfered into other subjects and may already be words that the children are familiar with).
