Speaking and listening are important skills for students to learn. Mrs O'Neill has expertise in this area so we appreciated her sharing her knowledge and wisdom with us today.

Manner is very important when giving a speech. Mrs O'Neill demonstrated different ways of using your voice to be more interesting and convincing when delivering a speech.

The students practised standing in a steady stance whilst giving a speech.

Matter is the second feature of a great speech. Mrs O'Neill reminded us of the importance of choosing a topic that is interesting to the audience. When speakers talk about something very personal it's less engaging for the audience.

Method is the final part of an excellent speech. It involves how the speech is organised and timed.

Finally Mrs O'Neill demonstrated how to plan a speech about graffiti.

We'll be following this up next week and doing some more thinking about speeches!
