This term we have been learning about fair trade. I think it is a really good organisation because they help poor farmers get a fair price for all their hard work.

My speech

Main Points

Self Assessment
Low                                         High
1           2           3           4           5

My speech was organised logically into paragraphs, with an effective introduction and a conclusion.

I used some gestures, stood still and made eye contact with my audience.

My voice was clear and loud.  I didn’t speak too quickly or too slowly.

My speech had a message and was original, interesting and relevant to the audience.

I used ‘powerful’ words in my speech.  I also included some language features (eg repetition, alliteration, similes etc)

My speech was between 2 ½ and 3 ½ minutes long.

1 min and 39

Next time I need to …

Next time I should make my speech longer

Teacher Comment

Aekkam, you structured your speech correctly and used persuasive language to convince us that all the seasons should be Summer. Well done!
