Primary Speaks Competition
On Monday, 18 June 2018 Invicta hosted the annual Primary Speaks Competition. Year 5 pupils from a wide range of schools joined a team of Invicta students to develop the skills needed in the art of Public Speaking. After a number of getting to know you exercises, and practising projection and speaking techniques the students worked with their mentors to prepare their speeches. After lunch, they participated in a competition to speak for 90 seconds on one of the following topics: Time Travel, Myths and Legends; Where the Land Meets the Sea and Magic Numbers
The standard was very high with some exceptional performances. The eventual winner was Lara from Loose primary school, and the two runners up were from East Borough. We thank the judges, Mr Salsbury, Dr White and Maria from Year 10 for having the difficult task of judging and choosing the winners!
Mrs Lloyd would like to thank the team leaders, Terrena, Gladys, Charlotte, Ella, Emily and Megan for their excellent work throughout the day.
