English Speaking Board
18th May 2016

The English Speaking Board is a national organisation that awards qualifications focused on communication skills at school and beyond. Derwent Lodge Year 3 have followed the new ESB syllabus for Group Speaking at the higher level (Entry 3) for 7 to 10 year olds. They presented prose and poetry today to Senior Examiner, Ms Melissa Dalyanci. The girls were very happy to present their pieces. They were word perfect and really enjoyed the experience. 3L performed first. Their choice of poem was "Camping Out" by Judith Nicholls. They then read an extract from "The Snow Tales" by Michael Morpurgo. 3PB chose "Make Friends with a Tree" by Brian Moses as their poem and then read an extract from "This Morning I Met a Whale" by Michael Morpurgo.

Well done Year 3! Confident, entertaining performances and Distinctions awarded by ESB for both 3L and 3PB!! Fantastic!!
