Every Year Six pupil at Truro Prep School has written and presented a speech on a topic of their choice as part of their Prep School Diploma.
In English, pupils have learned how to craft and edit ideas, use rhetorical devices, perform and deliver a speech and field questions from an audience. Each presentation also used ICT skills including PowerPoint animation techniques, internet links, embedded videos and a wireless mouse.
Topics were diverse and ranged from themes of determination, inspiration and being different, to persuasive reasons why we should holiday in Naples, Poland or Cornwall.
The skills learned and used will prove valuable to each child’s secondary education and beyond.
