Modal verb: the possibility of the verb eg. could walk
Prefix: added to the beginning of a word eg. sub-
Passive voice: when the subject of a sentence has something done to it by someone/something eg. The mouse was being chased by the cat.
Formal language: words you would find in books and information texts eg. capture rather than grab
Parenthesis: also known as brackets
Synonyms: words with the same meaning eg. damp/moist
 
Quick, get back in the classroom as quick as you can! Keep smiling… Mrs Etheridge.

Value

Perseverance

Very little that is really worthwhile in life can be achieved without perseverance. An athlete may train for years before they are ready to compete at the highest level. A musician must practice every day, sometimes for hours at a time, if they are to really master their instrument.
