Supporting students in recognising the true value of their voices!


Workshop Description

When we think about what we might stand to lose we never speak up, it's clear that we shouldn't take the opportunity to have our say for granted. Your students will be invited to consider this before being challenged to come up with some "Standing Up for Speaking Out" slogans. And, to remind them how enjoyable using their voices can be, the workshop finishes with groups performing their slogans for the rest of the class.

KS3 - KS4 / S1 - S4
1 - 2.5 hours

How many pupils can take part?

What is the format of the day?
We will work with you to plan a timetable for the workshops, to suit the number of classes you would like to include - and around the specific timings of your school day.
