Word of the Week - MYRIAD
Science and English combine for WOTW
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 14th March is: Myriad.

2. Having many elements or aspects.
Example: It was almost impossible to complete the puzzle due to the myriad of pieces.
Synonyms: Mass, droves, innumerable.
Antonyms: Countable, limited.
