Confident Speaking Programme
This is a public speaking programme designed to empower your pupils to use their public speaking tools to introduce, to chair, to ask an open question, and to deliver a short speech.
Age 8-9 Confident Speaking
Programme and Competition
The programme is high energy and action-packed and offers every pupil the opportunity to speak. Pupils learn the 4 tools of public speaking and prepare for the competition through in-person workshops delivered by one of our trainers, or through online lessons taught by Mighty Oak founder Nicky Browne and facilitated by the class teacher. The competition is designed to give a platform to showcase the pupils' learning.
There are two distinct purposes to the competition:
1 - To provide your very articulate pupils with an opportunity to stretch themselves further.
2 - To provide your less confident pupils with an opportunity to be part of a team, to represent their school, and to 'achieve'.
There is an In-Person and an Online Competition. Each class will submit one competition entry.
There are 7 roles on an in-person team.
3 roles are judged:
