There are 171,476 words in the English Dictionary today – some are used often, some are more obscure but all are unique. In light of this, the children at Pearson Primary School are challenging you to…
Make up a new word.
Make up a new word and write a dictionary definition. It could be anything… a word to describe your current mood, someone you care about, or a memory, thought or idea? Be as silly or serious as you like.
If you have a bit more time…
Once you have mastered a new word, try and use it in a sentence.
How did it feel to make up a new word, did it help you express yourself?
Write your new word or film yourself speaking the word and share it on social media. Don’t forget to use #ChallengeHull & #64MillionArtists and tag us on our social media channels on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and Pearson Primary School on Twitter too.
If you haven’t already, join our Facebook group and connect with other challengers.
This year we are working in collaboration with Hull 2017, UK City of Culture to deliver transformative cultural activity and celebrate everyday creativity in 2017.
