Jeopardise…

Jeopardise is a great word – looking at the spelling, it reminds me of leopard: a very unusual spelling pattern is being used here.  It means  putting someone or something into a position of danger, loss, harm or failure. So I would jeopardise my job if I broke the law – and a child would jeopardise their chances of having a playtime if they cheeked their teacher. Miscellaneous is a word that just feels great when you say it – and you feel clever if you can spell it! It means various or varied – and often is used about gathering together a set of different items; so you could say, ‘he had a bunch of miscellaneous coins in his pocket’ or ‘some miscellaneous crayons in his pencil case’.

Quaint from the Y6 class means picturesque, charming or sweet – when I am driving through the country and I come across a beautiful little village, I might say ‘how quaint‘. I also like the word gravity because it has different meanings. Obviously, gravity is that force that pulls an object down, but it also means something that is serious – so I might speak to a parent with gravity if I were excluding their child from school. I know that Y4 are looking at a text about the sun at the moment because two classes have chosen sun-related words: Miss Moseley’s have used photosphere which is the sun’s outer shell from which light is radiated. Finally, the word countenance means a person’s facial expression: Mr Brian wore a grave countenance when he excluded the naughty child. See if you can learn to spell these words and to use them in your writing…

  5. Dear Mr Brian, these are my word if the week sentences:

    Mrs Noble had a confused countenance as trying to decipher a piece of hand writing.

    If I didn’t listen in class and prepare for my says then I could jeopardise my chances of passing them all.
    I love going to the cinema because I get pick and mix which has miscellaneous choice of sweets.
    When I go on holiday it’s very quient for me and I can hear all the birds singing.
    If I drop an object the force that pull the object to the ground is gravity.
    When we look up to the sun the only thing we can see is the sun’s photosphere.

  6. The countenance on the teachers face matched the gravity in her voice .She was mad since her pupil was messing around with their quaint pencil case, which had miscellaneous pencils. The teacher also mentioned that they would jeopardise their chance of going on the school trip. Also while the teacher was telling them off they stared at the photosphere of the sun.

    The naughty boys who keep vandalising our school on a night nearly jeopardised our halloween disco by stealing all the sweets. I don’t think their parents faces would be very countenance if they knew what their child was up to.

  14. My dad had an angry COUNTENANCE on his face as I told him to go away. I didn’t want to JEOPARDISE not playing out again so I went to bed. In the morning, I went and bought him a QUAINT game for his xbox. To be nice I went to sort put my sister’s MISCELLANEOUS pencil case. Then I went to look at the photosphere of the moon, and when I was going to bed that night, when I took my slippers on they dropped to the floor as gravity was pulling it down.

  18. We found our word in the text sun.

    Did you know that photosphere means when you look up it’s the lowest layer.
    Gravity is what keeps us on the ground for example if we were on the moon and we jumped we would go very far and if I did it on earth we would do a very little jump.
