Overall winner Kyran in year 5

On Friday the 4th of November, the annual Good Speaking Competition was held at school. All children in Years 2 to 6 learnt a poem off by heart. They then performed their poem to the year group and sixteen children were selected from each year to go forward into the semi-finals. Phase Leaders heard those children recite their poems and they chose eight to represent the year group in the final. In the final, judges Mr and Mrs Finnigan and Mrs Elliott chose the best performance from each year. The finalists were Bobbi T (year 2), Rhys A (year 3), Mischa M (year 4), Kyran R (year 5) and Matilda S (year 6) pictured above. These five children all recited their poems for the final time and the judges decided that the overall winner was Kyran from year 5, with his poem, ‘The Myth of the Minotaur’ by Paul Perro.
