Year 7 students have been practising their oracy skills today as part of their ‘Talk about Transition’ workshops with Talk the Talk, who provide resources and workshops to help promote confident communication. During the sessions there were opportunities for students to develop relationships with their new friends, work together in discussion groups and perform a collaborative speech. They learned about how to structure a speech and ways to develop their confidence in speaking.
All were a credit to the school, they really engaged with the activities and listened well to one another during the speeches. Mrs Green was extremely pleased with their efforts. There are some fantastic orators in Year 7 and we can't wait to see how they develop their skills further in their weekly Oracy lessons.
Student Nasra said, “The workshop made me feel confident about speaking in class.”
