Preparing our speeches

We have been very bust preparing our speeches. We have researched symbolism and Kiwiana, organised our ideas and research on a mind map, typed our speech onto a Google doc, recorded our speech and linked it onto our blog, and finally we are creating cue cards to help us present our speeches.



Below is Janine's speech, check out the student blogs link on the left to hear some more.
