Speeches 2016

We have been learning about speech writing. Our speeches this year had to be argument based (where you explain your reasons for a certain opinion). We started off with writing about cats and dogs as this subject is one my pupils are familiar with. I am very proud of our Room Zero pupils. Their ideas and writing were of a very high standard (especially considering some pupils have only been at school for a few months). We hope you enjoy reading our speeches. Thank you to Room Four pupils who helped us to learn our speeches and thank you to our parents for their help at home.

Hello, my name is Noah.
My speech is about
dogs and cats.

I think dogs are better
than cats because
I have a dog called
Brownie and he
doesn’t scratch people.

Dogs can run fast, fast,
Dogs can keep you safe
because if there’s a robber
dogs can bite them.

I don’t like cats because
they don’t even bite robbers.
Dogs brains are bigger than
cats in proportion to their
body size.
That’s why dogs are smarter
than cats.
Dogs don’t worry about
getting wet, but cats
hate getting wet.

These are the reasons
why I think dogs are
better than cats.
Thank you

Thank you.

My name is Anika.
My speech is about
cats and dogs are better
pets than turtles and

Dogs tell you when people or
strangers come and cats
catch mice.

Cats and dogs can sometimes
sniff their way back home
if they are lost.

When Monty my turtle is
out in the pond, he eats
fish. Our chickens are not
very good because they
are not laying any eggs.
When they get big, fat and
old, they die.

That is why I think cats
and dogs are better than
chickens and turtles.

Thank you.
