Year 7 TED Talk Success

On July 6 and 7 our Year 7 Speech and Language pupils presented TED Talks on their chosen subjects to an audience of teachers, peers and family members.

These TED Talk lectures were a great opportunity to see some of our more reserved students come alive presenting lectures on their favourite topics.  

The Year 7 Speech and Language course, which they are a part of, is designed to both build students' confidence upon their sometimes difficult transition from primary to secondary education - an area of more concern following the impact the recent COVID restrictions have had on education - and boasts a bespoke lesson plan, which is curated to pre-teach secondary school topics that newly arrived students find most challenging, in doing so strengthening their ability in accessing the mainstream curriculum.
