Public Speaking Competition

Pupils in Year 4 have been learning public speaking skills in a series of special workshops. Two groups of pupils even attended a public speaking competition at Anglia Ruskin University, against other local primary schools. All the children performed brilliantly and one group won 3rd place medals! Children had different roles in a series of debates and one of our pupils won the best overall speaker award! Well done Year 4!

It was a well organised competition and the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves. It has to be one of my proudest moments as a parent seeing my son take part! Thankyou Miss Middleton and Lawford Mead School.

Mrs Baker - What a fantastic opportunity and an amazing achievement for you all. We are all incredibly PROUD of the confident and articulate public speakers you have become - well done!

Andrew - Well done to all our Lawford Mead speakers and to those whom trained them. Great results!
Even more pleased to hear that public speaking is to be introduced from Yr 2 onwards. Its a critical skill for today's and tomorrow's world. Amoungst the benefits for our children are

Improved communication skills.
Increased self-esteem.
Researching a topic well.
The power of persuasion.

Thank you for running with this.
