Wordwise

Wordwise provides an effective means for carrying out the study of word meanings – particularly words with Latin or Greek root words and prefixes.

Wordwise contains a bespoke dictionary containing slightly simpler word definitions than an ordinary dictionary, 27 Word Study sheets, and several Word Stories which are used in conjunction with some of the Word Study sheets.

Prior to starting the Word Study sheets, pupils are taught the skills required for finding words in a dictionary.

Wordwise gives pupils some understanding of the richness of English and the origins of words, as well as greatly expanding their vocabulary.
