Word of the Week

Alternative is this week's WOTW

 In our efforts to continue to develop students’ literacy we have launched a ‘Word of the Week’ programme.

The ‘Word of the Week’ will be displayed in classrooms and around the school and will be used throughout lessons in order to ensure students are developing their vocabulary. Literacy achievement points can now be awarded to students for the correct usage of these words in all lessons.

The ‘Word of the Week’ for the week commencing 14th December is: Alternative.


Meaning 1- A thing (object or idea) that can be used instead of something else.


Is there an alternative method of doing this task?

Is there an alternative route we can take if the traffic is bad?

Meaning 2 - Different from the usual or traditional way in which something is done.


People may have alternative interests in fashion, literature or beliefs.

Alternative energy can be produced using the energy from the sun, wind or water.
