Word of the Week

Disappear

 

Meaning: something stops being visible.

 

Example of using it in a sentence “Every Christmas my Dad cooks a very scrummy ham, we all call it the ‘The Famous Disappearing Ham’ recipe."

 

The root word is made up from a late Middle English word, the word ‘appear’ and the French ‘dis’ meaning ‘not’. So, they combined the two to make the antonym.

 

Spelling tip: we are going to help ourselves by breaking up the word like this is with focus on the “pp” in the middle so we don’t forget to put both in.

 

                                                               dis + app + ear

 

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