This is the next post in the #WednesdayWords weekly series where I will bring you some wonderful words every Wednesday.
There will be 5 words each week. One of the 5 will have a connection to reading, writing or language in general. Some you may have heard of but I am also hoping to bring you some that you don’t know.
So watch the short video below and let’s get started with F.
And just in case you are not sure of the meanings, I have included them below the video.
How many did you know? Check your meanings here…
F is for
Fabaceous – bean-like
Fagottist – a bassoon player
Fustian – pretentious writing or speech
Flibbertigibbet – a gossipy or flighty person.
Fish – Did you know…
- The world’s largest fish is the Whale Shark which can grow to about 40 ft long
- The deepest living fish in the world is the Mariana Snailfish. Scientists found them living at a depth of over 8,000 meters in the deepest part of the ocean in the world, the Mariana Trench.
- Approximately 382 million portions of fish and chips are eaten every year in the UK, that’s 6 portions for every man, woman and child! We may have to rethink our consumption of fish in the future though.
