Word of the Week

exception (noun)

Meaning – a person or thing that is excluded from a general statement or does not follow a rule or fit into a category.

Example of using it in a sentence: “Nearly every one learning with Orchard Training is part of a study buddy group with the exception of David who is in a year group by himself.

Spelling Tip – this Latin root word ‘except’ means ‘to take out’ or ‘to separate’ or ‘to set apart something from the rest.’ When we add the suffix ‘tion’ on to the end it shows you are doing or taking the action of taking out, setting apart or separating.

ex + cept + tion

Use the word as many times throughout the week as you can. This can be verbally, in your written work or listen out for other people using it.
