    Speeches Speeches Presentation Transcript

    • Preparing a Speech Years 5 & 6
    • Choosing a Topic
      • Is it interesting?
      • Will your audience find it interesting?
      • Do you know something about it or will you be able to find enough information and ideas about the topic?
      • The topic that is personal to you is often the best idea so that you feel relaxed and confident about what you are saying
    • Brainstorming and Planning
      • Write down everything you can think of about your topic:
        • Key words and phrases
        • Information
        • Thoughts and feelings
        • Ways to present your content
    • Writing your Speech
      • Sort your ideas from brainstorming and planning - order them
      • Work out your beginning, middle and end:
        • Beginning - get the audience’s attention e.g. a rhetorical question, a riddle, a sudden movement or word. Expression!!
        • Middle - your information, give examples, tell a ‘story’, make the audience believe in what you are saying and try to involve them.
        • End - sum up with a conclusion that will leave the audience thinking. What was the main point of you speech?
    • Length of your Speech
      • It should be at least two minutes long and no longer than three minutes
    • Cue Cards
      • Write your speech on cue cards
      • Make sure that they are not too much bigger than your palm
      • The best thing to do is to write notes and reminders on your cue cards rather than your whole speech
    • Practice
      • Practise your speech over and over again until you feel very confident about saying it.
      • Say it in front of your family, friends, pets and the mirror
      • If you can, tape yourself . How do you sound?
    • Engagement with your audience
      • Try your best to relax and feel confident when speaking to your audience (this isn’t easy)
      • Ensure that you have eye contact with a variety of members of the audience, not just one or two and not with the back wall.
      • Make your audience feel involved and relaxed with you too. A good way to do this is by telling a story as an example of what you are trying to say. When your audience can relate to what you are saying it makes them feel involved.
      • Humour can often help to relax you and build a rapport with your audience
    • Delivery
      • Remember the way you say your speech is just as important as what you say.
      • When practising your speech delivery you need to consider the following skills
        • Clarity and volume of voice
        • Expression and intonation
        • Pace
