Nau Mai Haere Mai ki Term Four
Literacy and Inquiry - Personal Passion Projects
Term Four is all about reading, researching and writing a persuasive speech. This year our focus is to persuade our audience about an issue that arises from our personal passion projects that we are delving into for Inquiry. Behind the scenes we are reading and discussing exciting, informative text that can help inspire us and we are also listening to some engaging speakers who work in an area that they are passionate about. This is to help us explore careers that may be of interest in the future, and think about how our passion could become our career. Our students will present their speeches in the team during Week 4 and finals will be held on Wednesday 15th November, Week 5. You are most welcome to attend the finals.
