Homework:

Speaking and Listening Assessment Homework -Dec 2017

 

As part of children’s on going speaking and listening assessment children will be expected to deliver a short speech about a topic of their choice. Ideally the speech should be not less than 3 minutes and not more than 5 minutes. Children can use notes but should not read directly off a prepared script.

 

The best speakers, chosen by staff, will be asked to take part in the Junior Speaking Competition organised by The Rotary Club of Cardiff, Llanishen. This is a competition that we have done well in recently. Previous topics have included: Imagination, Dreams, The Bermuda Triangle, Cyber Bullying, Comedy, Various Animals, Rosa Parks, My Brother and Gymnastics. The list is endless but it recommended that children choose a topic that they are already enthusiastic about.

 

Children will be expected to be ready for the second week after Christmas.

 

Tips for a good speech

 

  • Eye contact with audience
  • Voice projection
  • Fluent delivery
  • Not reading from notes
  • Humour if appropriate for topic.
  • Maintaining audience interest
