Word of the Week

The Word of the Week this week is ‘Audacious’ which can have 2 definitions in the Oxford Dictionary.

  1. Showing a willingness to take surprisingly bold risks.
    e.g. ‘What a rugby match, and what a performance by this brave, audacious and talented Irish team.’
  2. Showing an impudent lack of respect.
    e.g. The commentator’s audacious comments about penalty do not stand up to scrutiny.

We can all learn new words and increase our vocabulary – parents can help by encouraging pupils to use the Word of the Week and to spot it in the world around them.
