7En2 – Mr Dettman – Words Words Words!

Due: Friday – 16th October (4 days)

Dear Year 7, for Friday please complete on the blog, or neatly, on paper, come in having written down:

– 3 words you like (plus a short explanation of why you like using them.)

– 3 words that you struggle with spelling (Discuss what is it that you find hard about spelling these words.)

– 3 new words (Use a dictionary or thesaurus to find them, or ask your parents for some ideas!)

Extension:

  1. Come up with a spelling rule for helping to spell your hard-to-spell words
  2. Look up the term: ‘Neologism‘.  Give me an example of a recent ‘neologism’ in the English language, and how it’s come about.

    I like using the word and because of the way it gives you more information I Also like the word spherical because it sounds like what it means finally I like the word reflect because of the way it make me think of a mirror or a person reflecting themselves.

    I have trouble spelling consequences, Explanation and examination.

    Words that I didn’t know about was idiomatic, neologisms and conjugate.

    My 3 words that I like are laughing, only because I love to laugh; family because it makes me feel warm inside and finally chocolate because I like to eat it. I struggle to spell obnocsious; curcomstances and circormfrance. A toupee, is a hair piece (wig), unsophisticated, which means people do not have a wide range of experience or knowledge and the last word is placates, to placate someone you do or say something to make them stop.
