Since the start of the academic year, students have been working extremely hard on their oracy skills across the school. In English, a particular focus has been placed on using oracy approaches to improve performance and memory skills.
English Key Stage 3 Coordinator, Mr Stoker, said:
Year 7 and Year 8 students have all had the opportunity to perform and recite poetry and Shakespearean writing in lessons and at whole year events. Over the last term, students have been working on performing Shakespearean soliloquies and monologues of their own creation. Tuesday saw some fantastic performances from Year 8 in the main hall and Friday will see performances from Year 7.
Miss Vickers, English Key Stage 5 Coordinator, said of the event:
We’d like to congratulate all of the students and staff who came together to make this such a fantastic project.
