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 20th June is: Encapsulate.


1. To enclose (something) in, like a capsule

 2. To express the features or components of something succinctly (briefly, but clearly).
