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!
