Primary Speaks Competition
On Monday, 16 June 2014, Invicta Grammar School hosted its first Primary Speaks Competition. Thirty five Year 5 students attended the day and completed a series of workshops and activities which allowed them to develop Public Speaking techniques, increase their confidence, and meet new friends. Despite some initial nerves, students worked in groups with their Year 7 mentors to create a speech on topics such as ‘Horrible Histories’ and ‘If I had three wishes they would be…’. In the afternoon, the students presented their one minute speeches in an exciting competition. We would like to congratulate our winner, Harry, runner up, Melissa, and all of the students who took part. The quality of work produced was excellent, and the participants really enjoyed their day. Thank you to Mrs Lloyd, Miss Parker and Miss Williams for organising such a successful day.
