This week, the Word of the Week is: describe.

This command word is used in lots of subjects, including: History, Music, Drama and Art.

In everyday use, it means:

‘Give a detailed account in words of.’

 Things to think about this week:

  • What types of things do you describe on a daily basis? How your day was? What you had for lunch? Directions for how to get somewhere?
  • What do examiners mean when they ask you to describe something?
  • Do you feel comfortable using the word describe in your written and verbal responses in class?

Ask your teachers about any of these questions this week in class!
