Year 0 and 1 students
Your child, along with all other New Entrant and Year 1 children, will be taking part in the Kiwi Team Poetry Recitation. Every child at this level is expected to memorise a poem and to recite it in front of their class, and, if they are confident enough, in front of a larger audience. The class finals will be held on Wednesday the 2nd of September 2015 at 14:00. Parents are welcome to attend these class finals.
Students will be judged on the following criteria:
Ø Recites the poem from memory
Ø Addresses the audience confidently (stance, eye contact)
Ø Volume and pace
Ø Use of expression and personal style
Each classroom teacher will select some representatives from their classes to take part in the Kiwi Team finals. The finals will be held in the school hall on Friday the 4th of September 2015 at 11:30. Once again families are welcome to attend these.
This year the Kiwi team teachers have selected some poems to choose from. Students can choose one poem and practise the poem as a regular part of their homework. He/she will be practising at school too but family support is essential in the development of confidence and expression.
