Pre Prep Elocution Competition

Well done to everyone in Years 1 and 2 for delivering such wonderful performances as they took to the stage in front of their extremely proud parents and teachers!

Our annual elocution competition gives pupils their first introduction to the art of public speaking, helping to give them the confidence to speak in front of a large audience. Everyone had been extremely busy choosing from a broad and wonderful mix of poems before working hard to remember and recite them with boundless enthusiasm!

As everyone took to the stage, our Guest Judge and former Deputy Headteacher, Mr Jasper Jarrett, had the very difficult decision of choosing the winners.

A huge well done to everyone, with particular congratulations to the chosen winners:

  • 1st place: Maddie L for her delightful performance of the poem ‘Quick! Quick!’
  • 2nd place: Edward R for making everyone laugh with the very amusing poem ‘The Brontosaurus’s Brains (and Where He Keeps Them)’
  • 3rd place: Bonnie W for her beautiful reading of ‘Snow Petrels’.
