A holiday, especially between school or college terms. Originally it referred to the students and staff emptying out of the school or college buildings between terms.
Vacans – empty (Latin).
ate – to make into, become, put into action.
tion – act, process, result of.
We decided to re-visit this ‘Word of the day’ as it is our last day of the summer term.
We hope you have an enjoyable summer ‘vacation’, stay safe and see you all in September.
Take care from Mrs Dyson and Mrs Williams.
