How many of your Yr 6 children don't know what narrow means?
Theres a year 6 teacher in my school who chooses 10 words each week and does lots of 5 minute activities with her class throughout the week to help them remember the definition. Seems to really work for them. I don't know if that's any use for you but I just thought it was a really nice way to help them expand their vocabulary.
Someone in my class last week handed me what they called "a pin with a hole". It's not just vocabulary that's limited - their practical skills aren't that hot either...
What was the pin with a hole?
My guess is a needle.
or a safety pin?
