Bush Talk

Some of Year 3 were set a challenge today to write and perform a short speech in order to persuade their teacher what was the most fun part of Bushcraft.
To be successful, they were told to include in their writing; persuasive words, good descriptions, rhetorical questions and emotive language.
Furthermore, they were judged on their expression, pronunciation and eye contact.
Here are some good examples:

Have they been successful? Feel free to make a comment…

Amy - Mr Cluett, surely you must believe me when I assure you that being told the hilarious (possibly scary) story was the most fun part of Bushcraft. I mean, what could possibly be better than listening to something that makes you scream in terror and then the next second laugh so much you get past the point where your sides ache? If birds understood it, they’d fall out of the sky with laughter and fright! Everyone was at the end of it 50% laughter and 50% fright. That is why you must believe me.

TillyGood afternoon class and Mr Cluett. Listen to me, you must believe me. The best bit of Bushcraft was when we built a roaring fire and a strong shelter. You must have enjoyed it? I felt so happy I jumped up and down! Well, you must believe me, if you don’t you will be in trouble with me! Thank you for listening to me.
