After a very busy morning enjoying ourselves at KS2 Sports Day, Year 5 spent Thursday afternoon improving their public speaking skills. We built on the skills we developed when we were younger – “Show and Tell” in Key Stage 1 and “Soapbox” in Lower Key Stage 2. We are expected to talk to our class for approximately two minutes on a subject of our choice without using a powerpoint presentation. Some of us already have the confidence to talk in front of others but we all know it is very useful to be able to improve the confidence and clarity with which we communicate to others. It is also great to find out about the wide range of interests that the children have in Year 5 – so far we have heard speeches about Rubik’s Cubes, crows, horses, drumming and allergies.
