If you are an optimist – if you have an optimistic view on life and if you are full of optimism, you see the best in the world. the word derives from the Latin ‘optimus’ which means the best – and it’s lovely to want and to be the best. I hope that all Ivanhoe children have an optimistic outlook because positive thinking can do wonders…

Our other words this week are as follows: pharmaceutical (G), which means relating to medicinal drugs or their preparation – so you go to a pharmacy or a chemist to get your medicines; supersede (L), which means when one thing is replaced by another – it has been superseded; isthmus (G), which is a strip of land between two bodies of water; apprehensive (L)ย – which means you are a bit nervous of something; and acquisition (L)ย – which means you have got something.

Try and use one or more of these words in your writing this week…
