How can I help my child to prepare for the Speech Festival?
1: Come to one of our Speech Festival Prep classes (of course!)
2: Read the poem through with your child and get them to retell the story to you. Do they understand all the language? If not, look up the words together.
3: Mark up the poem with the relevant emotions. Play with the voices and add in facial expressions.
4: Practice whenever you can in front of family members.
The Speech Festival is a brilliant way to build confidence, encourage your child irrespective of their final result!
