Frailty…

Frailty is such a lovely word (although not describing a lovely thing…) it means the condition of being weak and delicate. So something is said to be frail if it is weak or delicate – but I think the word itself sounds delicate…

The Y6 have chosen ominous as a word, it means, giving the worrying impression that something bad is going to happen – ‘those clouds look ominous’ is something you might say. The other Y6 word is rhapsody, which means an effusively enthusiastic or ecstatic expression of feeling. For my own class, our word is mentioned, which comes up in a Michael Rosen poem and it means, refer to (something) briefly and without going into detail. The final word is anaesthetic, which is a substance that induces insensitivity to pain.

Try and use one of these in a piece of writing…
