Uxbridge High School

Uxbridge are proud to present our initiative to develop the literacy and vocabulary of our students through the ‘word of the week’

Every week students will be introduced to a new word, which they will use in their written and verbal work during lessons and around the school.

Every time they use this word our students will be rewarded with Vivo points!

Powerpoints exploring the Word of the Week are below, please open one as a sample and help promote the use of the words at home with your children, to support us with improving literacy at Uxbridge High School.

This week's idiom and word of the week is...
