Words of the Day – week commencing 17th November 2014

This week’s words have come from Moreton Morrell

Monday: bucolic (adjective) – relating to rural or pastoral life

Tuesday: cerulean – (adjective) – deep blue in colour like the sky

Wednesday: pedagogy (noun) – the profession, science or theory of teaching

Thursday: anthropomorphism (noun) – the attribution of human characteristics or behaviour to a god, animal or object

Friday: passerine (adjective) – relating to the largest order of birds (Passeriformes) – distinguished by having feet adapted for perching – includes all songbirds

bucolicAt Moreton Morrell College there is a bucolic atmosphere. We can see the cerulean sky through the windows and watch the passerine birds hopping by. The teaching staff exercise their pedagogies in the classrooms and we try not to practise anthropomorphism on the animals which live here.
