Our Talk Homework task was to research, plan then deliver a presentation to an audience on a topic which was selected at random. We have all worked very hard on our speaking and listening skills. Find out more here, and watch our presentations by clicking below.
For her talk Jessie prepared a quiz on her topic of Wild Cats. She organised everyone into teams and had researched then written a lot of questions which included multiple choice, full answers and even spellings! There were also picture questions presented on the whiteboard. Everyone was keen to be the winning team but in the end only one lucky team could win - and Jessie had organised prizes too! What an interesting presentation - well done Jessie!

Saffron is a keen road cyclist and inspired everyone to get on our bikes with her interesting talk! She gave lots of information on a very whizzy powerpoint which was interesting to watch , and also a mini quiz with prizes! Well done Saffie!
Heroes by Alexander Munn
Alexander impressed us with his Heroes theme for his talk , when he spoke to us about Malala Yousafzai - the Pakistani activist for female education and the youngest-ever Nobel Peace Prize recipient. We all learned a lot of new things from this interesting and well researched talk. Alexander maintained the Heroes theme right to the end when he shared out Heroes chocolates for everyone in class 4/5. A delicious end to a very inspiring talk. Well done Alexander!
Jack's talk on the Inuit
Jack thoroughly researched lots of facts and gave us a geography and science lesson as well! He confidently presented his talk in the hall to a very large audience and impressed everyone with is his presentation skills. He had also been very busy and constructed a detailed lego model depicting an arctic fishing scene and an igloo. A great talk Jack!
Guy Fawkes loses the plot!
Emma was the first student in Class 4/5 to present her talk to and audience and as her topic was November 5th, she treated us all to a very interesting history lesson. We learned all about Guy Fawkes and his plot to blow up the Houses of Parliament, and about his rather unfortunate end (which linked in very well with our crime and punishment topic). We even had a life sized Guy in the classroom. Seeing as it was actually bonfire night, Emma shared her homemade bonfire toffee which was absolutely delicious. Thanks Emma - this was a great presentation!
Christmas Traditions From Around the World by Samantha
Samantha gave us a lesson on European Christmas Traditions. We all found it interesting to find out how children celebrate Christmas in other places and we even got to sample some Christmas treats from Germany! Samantha got everyone involved in a question and answer session and gave us an activity to do for homework too! Well done Samantha!
Fashion in the "noughties" by Harry
Codes by Alistair
Alistair gave us a lesson on Codes and Codebreaking for his talk homework and not only did we learn lots of new things but we had a go at cracking some codes and making our own too.
Jenson asked us all "is there anyone out there?" and gave us a very interesting presentation around the theme of Aliens! We learned some extraordinary facts about studies into Space and Jenson's talk raised lots of questions about things we would like to find out more about! Well done Jenson!
