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…

    The old, caring lady had a frail hip so she struggled to walk places.

    When I did my test ,that I struggled on, my teacher told me to meet her in the class room, so after break I went to go meet her ; she had a piece off paper and a ominous look on her face.

    The song was rhapsody and it was a big hit on the radio it even bet Dance Monkey ,which is my favourite song.

    The book mentioned very complicated words so I struggled to read them.

    My sister was given an anaesthetic before she went into surgery.

  9. The woman was of such frailty that every time she walked she mentioned to herself to go slow and steady.
    The teacher had an ominous look on her face as she was giving out stats results to the children.
    The sweet rhapsody was played by the pianist on Britains Got Talent.
    An anaesthetic is sometimes in a syringe and it gets jabbed into the injured part of the body to make it go numb before surgery.
