All the pupils in the Prep School have been busy learning about persuasive writing in English lessons. This has culminated in them writing their own speech, to persuade their peers, to vote for them as a representative for the School Council or the School Food Committee. The speeches and performances have been very impressive and the children have gained so much from the exercise including improving their writing techniques and their speaking and listening skills. We look forward to announcing next week, all those pupils who have been voted to be on one of these committees and hearing the children’s suggestions and comments in our first meeting later this term.
