Event description

Description

Elmhurst Teaching School Alliance is proud to be once again organising the East London Speechmaking Festival, back by popular demand. This festival aims to celebrate the power of the voice and the spoken word, and to develop the abilities of pupils and their teachers to express themselves passionately, clearly and with confidence.

KS2 pupils will learn classic speeches by heart, learning how to deliver these speeches with passion. They will also learn how to write a powerful speech and will create their own to perform.

The course:

Teachers will attend a Speechmaking Festival teacher training on 27th September 2019 at Elmhurst Primary School and the Festival on 29th November 2019 at NewVIc College. This course is designed to help teachers support pupils learn and create speeches and will be facilitated by Elmhurst Oracy Lead Sam Creighton and poet Adisa the Verbaliser. The training will encompass:

• Developing strategies for promoting confident speaking

• Developing an understanding of the classical techniques of rhetoric

• Sharing a systematic approach to creating speeches with children

All schools taking part in the speechmaking festival are expected to send one teacher to the training day. The same member of staff will prepare the pupils selected for the Speechmaking Festival and attend with the pupils. The pupils can be drawn from any KS2 year group.

Dates:

Training - 27th September 2019: 09:00am - 15:30pm

Festival - 29th November 2019: 10:00am - 14:00pm
