Speaking and Listening

In April, we held our Year 3 and 4 Bodriggy Speaks competition and the standard was so high. Over the last couple of weeks, the children have written speeches and held in-class competitions, so the nine finalists, were already winners. They were so composed and delivered their speeches confidently. Keiana did a brilliant job of chairing the event. The judges had a very difficult decision to make, but in the end, decided that Kallie was the runner up and Imogen, who spoke about koalas, was the winner. Well done, Imogen!

Youth Speaks 2024

On Saturday 2nd March, we took our Youth Speaks team to Tavistock to take part in the Rotary Club District Final. Having already won two regional rounds, they were part of the top 11 public speaking teams across Devon and Cornwall; that’s quite an achievement.

The girls gave it their best shot, and presented their speeches in a way that made all of us supporting them extremely proud. Unfortunately, they did not win this competition, but came away as more confident and articulate speakers-a skill that will be beneficial to them in the future.

Congratulations to the Mousehole team who were runners up.

What a successful run you've had Keiana, Eliza and Fallon. Be proud!

The Bodriggy Youth Speaks Team Does It Again!

The following comment is from the Mounts Bay Rotary Club:

What do “Greek and Norse Gods” have in common with “My Future: My Choice”? Well, they were the topics for discussion chosen by Year 6 pupils in Mousehole School and Bodriggy Academy at the Area round of Youth Speaks today held at Penwith College in Penzance. Both schools now go through to the District Final (the whole of Cornwall and Devon) at Tavistock College on 2nd March. Congratulations to both teams!

Amongst other topics discussed by teams were: artificial intelligence, SAS (students against sewage), and Pineapple - does it belong on a pizza? This was the second round of the competition, so all seven teams participating today did really well. The standard of public speaking was, as usual, very high.

We wish both teams good luck in the next round.



Yesterday, a very excited Youth Speaks team made their way to Penwith College to take part in the next round of the competition. The girls were drawn 7th, so had a nervous wait to perform their speech. The competition was tough, and the judges had a very difficult job to do. After a long wait, the decision was made: Bodriggy and Mousehole teams were the winners!


Eliza, Keiana and Fallon you have made Bodriggy Academy VERY proud, and you should be VERY proud of all that you have achieved.

Congratulations to Eliza, Keiana and Fallon who represented Bodriggy Academy in the Rotary Club's Youth Speaks Competition. The girls all spoke confidently and delivered a fantastic team effort. We were delighted to hear that they were one of two schools to win the preliminary round and will now go on to the second round of the competition. Good luck girls!

The children in Y5/6 have been writing their own poetry and working on perfecting their performance skills.
