Word of the Week

furthermore (adverb)

Meaning – this word means in addition to something already said or written.

Example of using it in a sentence: “it is good to work on the tasks during the lesson but to get the out of your education you need to do your homework. Furthermore, you need to read both for information and for pleasure every day.

Spelling Tip – we have two words here so we will take them separately. The hardest one first, in further we have two ‘er’ sounds but made with a different combination of letters.

They are not in alphabetical order to help us either. So, it will be muscle memory and saying the word out loud. The second word is more and we would have learnt that either as ‘m’ + ‘or’ and ‘e’ or as I have broken it up here ‘m’ + ‘ore’

One of our previous learners came up with this mnemonic: Hope it helps!

Furthering understanding rules then have extra rules making operations round errors.

If not

f + ur + th + er + m + ore

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.
