The past two weeks in 1J we have been focussing on writing and presenting a speech to the grade. To learn about giving speeches we watched Julia Gillard giving an acceptance speech and the Royal baby anncoucement. We have been focussing on body language, facial expressions, talking to the audience, giving eye contact, using appropriate volume and speed, reading from cue cards, active listening and interesting beginnings to speeches.
As part of the students weekly homework we resarched our parents or grandparents favourite toy. We used the information we had collected to write a speech and create a poster.
Today we presented our speech to the grade and we did a wonderful job.
