Word of the Week

exceed

 

Meaning: something has gone beyond a given number or amount or beyond its permitted limit or expectations.

 

Example of using it in a sentence “Sophia has exceeded her homework this week and started some of next week’s units."

 

This Latin word has too parts the pre fix ‘ex-’ means thoroughly and the root ‘ceed’ means “to go, to move away or to produce more”.

 

Spelling tip: we are breaking the word up like this just as we say it.

 

                                                               ex + ceed

 

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.
