Mr Butler says… ‘In celebration of the great Dr Samuel Johnson’s 308th birthday (he compiled the first proper dictionary of English), here’s your first word of the week of the year. If you are new to Prior’s Field or unsure how to enter, I’ve emailed a quick ‘How to…’ guide. Have fun with it, and get some merits/chocolate!

This week’s Word of the Week is HALCYON

  • Look up the word in a dictionary
  • Find a definition and a word class (adjective,noun, verb etc)
  • Think of a sentence that shows that you can use the word properly
  • Fill in the form on Frog (including your name)
  • Get merits and, perhaps, chocolate

Winners will be informed next Monday’
