Pupil Voice 29 January 2015 Pupil voice has been a specific focus at Tu Xuong for some time; we place great importance on developing our students’ speaking and listening skills throughout the school. Our aim is for the children to become confident speakers and to use their “voice” to become involved in the wider school community. Activities in lessons such as hot-seating characters, presentations and debates all contribute to building up confidence in speaking. This term students have been demonstrating their speaking skills in a number of different ways. Through the Eco-Scouts and Eco – Warriors clubs, children have an opportunity to help us to become a greener school, and one of their roles is to make announcements in assemblies about eco-matters and award the greenest classroom certificate each month. In August, the House Captains in each House were elected after all the year 6 students gave a speech to their House. Every week they announce the House Points to the school in assembly. Year 5 held a speech competition, where students represented a planet and had to persuade Virgin Galactic that their planet would be the best for investment in space tourism. In October our Language in Focus was German, so we all tried hard to learn some German and speak it around the school! Year 5 entertained us all with their fantastic performance of Alfred Noyes’ poem “The Highwayman”.Jane McAdoo, EAL Leader Discover more Mr Carl Mincher: Weekly Update 18/01/2019 18 January 2019 I am guessing that many of you are welcoming exhausted children home this weekend.
