This resource will require children to write a speech to deliver to the local council persuading them to keep Robin Hill open as a tourist attraction, rather than sell off the land for housing development.
This resource presents a hypothetical scenario which requires students to write a speech to deliver to the local council to persuade them to keep Robin Hill open as a tourist attraction, rather than sell off the land for housing development.
Students will investigate the conventions of speeches, spend time researching the educational and environmental benefits of Robin Hill Country Park and write a formal speech, using emotive language and statistics.
They will present their speech in small groups to a panel of council members (played by teachers). They will be able to watch the speeches of the other groups and decide which had the most impact and why. They could produce materials in support of their argument which they may have sourced from the internet.
