Change the World

This week, Year 6 have been writing speeches. They have taken an issue that matters to them and used examples of powerful speeches to support them in writing their own impassioned work. Today they delivered them to the class and the hairs on my neck stood on end when I listened to them – genuinely fantastic writing. (C2, C3, C4)
