This week, the Word of the Week is: explain.
This command word is used in lots of subjects, including: Science, Maths, Art, Music, English.
In everyday use, it means:
‘Make (an idea or situation) clear to someone by describing it in more detail or revealing relevant facts.’
Things to think about this week:
- Do you explain things clearly when you are speaking to others?
- What do examiners mean when they ask you to explain something?
- Do you feel comfortable using the word explain in your written and verbal responses in class?
Ask your teachers about any of these questions this week in class!
