Lings Talks!

Here you go Year 5 and 6.

Your task is to give a talk of between 1 and 2 minutes on a subject of your choice. You can talk about anything at allβ€”a hobby, a place, a personβ€”absolutely anything! It is probably best to choose a subject that you feel passionate about.

You will need to research your subject, prepare your talk and practise delivering it. You will be allowed to bring in one prop to help you in presenting your talk. You will not be allowed to read your talk directly but will be able to bring in notes to help remind you of key points. You will also not be able to use programs such as Powerpoint. We just want you to talk about something that really engages you.

Over the next week we will be watching a number of people give talks of their own and will be developing a list of qualities that a speaker needs to be successful. This will help you to deliver your talk at the end.

You have until the start of Autumn 2 in November to prepare this. We will be presenting them to a selected audience anytime from the week beginning 2nd November onwards.

If you need any help then just ask. Feel free to pose questions on the class blog where this homework is also posted.

Good luck. Show us how good you are!

You can go to the shopping district and go to various shops such as: Nooks homes, able sisters , shampoodle (hair dresser) T.I.Y (home centre to buy home items) kicks and the garden shop there is a museum you can visit

    What can you do :
    You can create a town with your assistant Isabelle, at first you start of with 5 animals I your town (who live around you)and you also start of with a tent as a house until you have paid it of then you can start getting mansions as your house. At the shopping district there are various shops like Able sisters , kicks , T.I.Y (home centre ) shampoodle (hair dresser), the garden shop and nooks homes (where you can buy your new home and extend it when you have paid a loan). In your town you can do town projects you can build a police station , a camp site and many other things as well.

  7. ROBLOX:
    Roblox is a online game where you can play games and make friends. You can make an account then you just start playing or you can become a guest and play without an account. You can also make your own game by going on your world and on your world there will be all the blocks you want to make your game.You have these things called TIX and they are like Roblox money. With the TIX you can buy new clothes and new hair styles and get a cool new look. There is also Robux and with Robux you can buy the cool in-game things like GOD Mode and GOD Mode lets you fly, sprint, make explosions and you can’t get killed. The games on Roblox are very fun, some are challenging and some are spooky. My favourite games are: Adopt and raise a Kid, Five-Nights-At-Freddys roleplay, Survive the disasters and Blox hunt.
