Year 4’s WOW Word of the Week!

In Year 4 we always love to learn new words and challenge ourselves to use them in our conversations and writing.


Which new words have you learnt this week?


This week, my new favourite word is…..


It’s a noun, it means a difficult, uncomfortable or perhaps embarrassing situation.






Try to use it in your own sentence. Here are some examples…


I hope you can understand the predicament I was in.


It was a tremendously uncomfortable predicament.

If it really was a bear lurking behind her, she would be in a very unpleasant predicament.


Mrs Henderson


  1. There was Bigfoot to the left of me and one coming up from behind, now how was I to escape from this predicament?

    • WOW! I’m impressed with the speed of your response Nathan! I love your energy….and I love the sentence! πŸ™‚

    • Great use of the word. I love your use of the word ‘crevice’ too! Try to include the commas after the first clause next time Dylan πŸ™‚

    • Good effort with this Wiktoria – perhaps use the words ‘was in a’ before the word predicament to make it clearer i.e. The famous singer was in a predicament about whether to wear a ___ or a ____.
      Loving your enthusiasm!
