Word for the day

Following my little anecdote from yesterday here is the 2nd of the 2 words I mentioned….

un nénuphar = a water lily

Of course, you can’t think of water lilies without thinking of Monet. Surely this is a word that will come in handy if doing some cross-curricular work with art at KS2. I am thinking of some of the wonderful work teachers have done combining a discussion of Kandinsky’s work with simple adjectives and colours.

At KS4, of course, we are always encouraging the learners to include more unusual vocabulary. Teach them this and I can guarantee they’ll never forget it!
