Last term the Year 5 boys took their first ever English
Speaking Board Examinations in group speaking. They worked extremely hard
preparing a presentation based on a book they had studied. This involved
acting out parts of the plot, explaining why they had enjoyed it and quoting
from the text to support their ideas. All of this had to be learned by
heart and presented by the whole group in a fun and interesting way. The
boys also learned a poem to recite together.
During the Summer Holidays we received the results of the
exams. I am delighted to report that Groups 1, 2 and 3 were all awarded Merits
and Group 4 received a Distinction. This is a fantastic result and the
boys should all be very proud of their achievement. They will be
receiving their certificates in the next few days.
