Year 9 Practise Persuasive Speeches

In English this term, our Year 9 students have been working on their persuasive speeches. This week, the Year 9 boys' classes had a public speaking lesson in the FLS where they split into smaller groups and performed their speeches. Their aim was to convince their audience to agree with their position on a contemporary topic in the media and it was great to see them showing King's Foundational Values of courage and perseverance, as they stepped out of their comfort zones to excel in this task. Meanwhile, the Year 9 girls enjoyed an interactive lesson this week where they used Jamboard, an exciting ICT tool that allowed them to brainstorm and collaborate with their classmates on their persuasive speech ideas.
