Your homework task this week is to write a 3-4 minute speech. The speech will be on the topic-
‘You are a Travel Guide. Your job is to explore your local area – as if you’ve never seen it before! Document what you find. Tell us all about your discoveries and why we should visit.’
(Hint: think about all the exciting things to do in the area you live in)
Your speech must include the following:
Beginning- begins in an interesting way
Central Theme evident and logical sequence developed
Research – supports opinions with facts and/or examples

This speech will be used for the Public Speaking Competition for those that want to participate. Not all students have to present their speeches, however all students MUST write a speech.

The Grade 5/6s have their Lightning Prem Day this Friday. Unfortunately we have no volunteers to help the teams. The four sports are basketball, tennis, volleyball and softball. Anyone interested in coaching, scoring or just helping out for the day please contact the school today!!
Also please ensure you have a valid Working with Children’s Check that is registered to Beaconsfield Primary School.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
Today some of our Grade 5/6s competed the Regional Hoop Time competition at Dandenong Basketball Stadium. We had two teams representing Beaconsfield who played with excellent skill and sportsmanship.
The Beacy Bobcats just missed out on playing in the qualifying match, while the Beacy Bears won all their matches convincingly and have qualified to the state finals.
Eight students tonight presented their speeches at the Narre Warren Lions Club. All the students spent a lot of time and effort to perfect their speeches.
Beaconsfield was successful in winning the school competition trophy, whilst Ben and Maddy advanced to the next stage tomorrow night.
Well done to everyone who participated and good luck to Maddy and Ben tomorrow night!
Grade 4- Ben, Mitchell and Dakota
Grade 5- Olivia, Ella and Maddy
