Grade 5 Graduation / Celebration Speech

This week we have been planning and writing our end of year speech celebrating all of the experiences that the students have enjoyed in their Elementary school years, either at YIS or elsewhere. We really learned something about ‘Who We Are’ from our reflections as we built up our speeches.

All students have practised their speeches independently and with a partner. The speeches and the actual writing have been uploaded to Seesaw for you to see and read on that platform.

Planning was based on THIS document.

From 5W – 10 students decided that they would like to challenge themselves and make their speech in front of the class. All students voted on each speech based on the following rubric.

The result was extremely close – but we will be represented by Hal Mikasa who topped the number of votes. Congratulations to Hal and thank you to all students who challenged for the honour of representing our wonderful 5W class this year.
