Word of the Week - Emulate

Emulate - WOTW for w/c 25 January

 In our efforts to continue to develop students’ literacy we have 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 25th January is: Emulate.

Example: Most rulers want to emulate Alexander the Great.

2.    To directly imitate someone.

Example: I have emulated her haircut because it looks so fantastic.

Synonyms: Mirror, mimic, parallel.

Antonyms: Disregard, ignore
