Public Speaking Skills with Madame Hargreaves

It is so important to equip our young people with the confidence and skills to speak in public: To manage their nerves, command an audience and keep their attention. Year 5 and 6 boys have made a super start to their Public Speaking Skills classes this term. They really impressed me with ‘finding their own dynamic voice’, looking at what gives our voice it's own personal and unique stamp. This side of term we are working on 'hand gesture and making eye contact to enhance the impact of a 3 minute persuasive speech'. There will be an end of term performance with prize giving.
