5 Minute Challenge

In Maple class we are committed to learning and improving our presentation skills, so the children have been set the challenge to give a 5 minute presentation to their classmates and teachers on any subject of their choice.

This presentation will happen each Friday, and your child has been given a date to present on.

Children can choose any topic they are interested in, providing it is age appropriate and safe to do so. Popular topics include history, theme parks, favourite animals, a holiday.

Children are allowed to:

  • Make powerpoint presentations (email these to maple@jennyhammond.waltham.sch.uk by the Thursday before your childs presentation at 5pm).
  • Bring in small props or photographs to show the class to support their presentation.

Children are not allowed to:

  • Bring in any living creature.
  • Bring in food products.
  • Bring in any video games or technology (iPads, games consoles etc)

Good luck and happy presenting!
