This year all grade five participated and competed in a public speaking course.
Sylvia is the lady who ran the course. She was strict but as a result of that we have learnt so much. We have prepared many speeches and we have also done impromptu speeches. These speeches are very challenging as you have to make up your speech on the spot.We have talked about visual aids, gestures, emotions, projection and standing correctly with one foot forward and NO FIGLEAF! ‘Figleaf’, is standing with your arms clasped in front of your body and it is bad because it restricts you from making gestures and doing other important things.
On Wednesday night we had our public speaking evening for 2015 and we had the top ten speakers competing on the night as well as impromptu speeches and skits.
I we all did a great job but I would especially like to congratulate the top three; Katrina, 1st, Benedict, 2nd place and Mia (myself) in third place.
Thankyou to Sylvia, Mr G and the year five teachers for organising this amazing event.
Bye, and don’t forget to leave a comment!
