Powerful Words Project

Powerful Words uses Mrs Wordsmith products to support accelerated progress in reading and writing for KS2 pupils in years 3 - 6, by extending their receptive and expressive vocabulary. The project introduces 15 minutes per day of additional vocabulary instruction in class, focusing on Tier 2 words found in Mrs Wordsmith materials. The goal of the project is to teach children 120 new words each term over the course of  5 terms. At the end of each term, students will take a short vocabulary test that Mrs Wordsmith prepared for them, so that their teacher will be able to keep track of their progress.
