Year 11 pupils from Eastern High School were delighted to welcome legendary ITV newsreader, Jonathan Hill, to the school last Tuesday. They were lucky enough to hear him share his wisdom and experience on speaking and listening confidently and effectively. This was particularly appropriate as they are in the middle of their preparations for their GCSE English Language oracy controlled assessments.
Jonathan reminded them to let their words 'settle', to talk about their topic with 'passion' and to begin with a 'teaser' introduction to draw their audience in. All pupils listened attentively and made copious notes - we are very excited about their presentations next week!
