There are two worksheets at the bottom of the class page with questions and answers. I have also added a worksheet with slightly easier questions.

English - Speech writing. 

L.O: To be able to identify features of effective public speaking 

Success Criteria: 

SC1:I can understand what ‘delivery’ means 

SC2: I can explain how people deliver great speeches 

SC3: I can think about the messages that speeches communicate 


Remind yourself of what we looked at yesterday linked to great speeches. 


Today we are going one step further and we will be thinking about what makes an effective public speaker. 


Please watch today’s PowerPoint: and follow the instructions. 


Key questions: 


What do you think great ‘delivery’ means? 

Would a speech be powerful if it wasn’t delivered well? Why? 

Do you know of anyone in history that has struggled to deliver a speech? 

How can we deliver a great speech well? 

What challenges did King George have with his delivery? 



On your written copy of the King’s speech: 


  • Annotate where the King leaves a pause 

  • Annotate/circle the words he emphasises 


Final thought: Thinking about Martin Luther King’s speech and King George VI’s speech, which one did you think was the most powerful and why? 




Challenge 10

LO: To plan my research for my chosen subject.

SC1. I can choose a “best idea” and explain why.

SC2. I can link my “best idea” to one or more “Right Respecting” articles.

SC3. I can plan what questions I will ask to support my research.

SC4. I can begin to research my chosen idea.

Yesterday, you started to think about your new challenge and you began to consider what you will need in order begin your research. Today, you will need to choose your best ideas from yesterday and begin to apply them to your research. You will also need to start to consider how your chosen area of research links “Rights Respecting”?

When adding to your existing mind map remember to include:

  • What you chosen area of research is and why it’s so important to you.
  • Why do you think your chosen area of research should be important to others?
  • How does your chosen area of research link to “Rights Respecting”?
  • Are there questions you would like to add to your research?

Once you have finished writing in your reflective journals you may wish to begin your research and note taking and then finish it tomorrow.

I have added a copy of the “Rights of a Child” to the bottom of the class page.

If you want more ideas the please look at my reflective journal and the notes I have begun to make about the subject which engages me the most.
