SMALL talks are exciting presentations given by KS2 and KS3 pupils (aged between 7 and 14) which are filmed to share with the world. The talks are all planned, researched, written, filmed and edited by the children.
SMALL talks provide free planning and resources for teachers who want to educate their classes in the art of public speaking. The teachers then guide their pupils to create, film and edit their talks. When they are ready they are uploaded here for all to see! The good news for teachers is that by getting your classes to create SMALL talks you are covering National Curriculum English objectives!
It's hard to choose which SMALL talks to showcase here because they are all so awesome, but these are some recent presentations which we have taken a real shine to.
Have you already downloaded the pack and created your SMALL talks? Then make sure you upload them for the world to see.
We have put a lot of time into preparing the planning, resources, templates and guidance in this pack so you can get on with the exciting stuff. The pack talks you through creating SMALL talks from beginning to end. First your pupils will watch other talks and write their own success criteria, then they will write a plan of all the things they need to do to create their talks. After this they will research, write and rehearse. The final step is to film each others' talks and edit them ready to put up on this site!
The packs aren't available yet but will be in a couple of weeks time. Subscribe below to get a notification when we release them.
