Talk the Talk
Confident communication for life!
On Wednesday 11 September, 9W and 9S took part in the Talk the Talk Communication Plus day as a part of their Oracy course. Talk the Talk is funded through the Four Acre Trust and we are very fortunate to be able to offer their course for a heavily discounted rate. The aim of the workshop is to develop students’ confidence in speaking and give them life-long skills that will be invaluable in education and the workplace.
This workshop was designed to build skills that students had already developed in the Talk the Talk Transition workshop in year 7. In the morning session, students worked on interview skills in preparation for further education and workplace applications. In the afternoon, students worked on debating skills and took part in a lively balloon debate.
The students were highly engaged during the workshop and the trainers said they were a pleasure to teach for the day. Well done everyone!
