Oracy Day 2022
On Tuesday 22nd March 2022, we had our Oracy Day. This day involved students participating in activities that specifically focused on developing communication skills and confidence. All subjects were involved in this day, and it was great to see the amazing work that both teachers and students produced. For example, in history, students created a radio broadcast which was from the British prime minister addressing the public about the atrocities committed by Adolf Hitler. In Modern Foreign Languages, students raced other teams to find and share information about the German traditional festival of "Fasching" and the French festival of 'Mardi Grass', in order to improve their cultural understanding through speaking and listening skills. In Maths, students helped their peers by verbally communicating information about a mathematical word that was hidden on the board behind them. In food tech, students had to share the process of making Ravioli whilst other students assessed them on their oracy presentational skills.
