Challenge 10

LO: To plan the structure of my speech.

SC1. I can use my notes to create a plan for my speech.

SC2. I can link my “rights respecting” article to my ideas for the “ideal world”.

SC3. I can use the skills I have learnt in English this week to help develop the structure and tone of my speech.

Before you begin to write you speech you will need to be sure that you have all of the information and facts you need to support your case for your “ideal world”.

Today, I would like you to look through all of your research notes and the rights you will be linking them to and begin to plan out how different parts of your research and your “rights respecting” links can be added into your speech. You will need to keep in mind that you will need to use the skills you have used in English to set the tone of your speech and it will be the emotive content of your research that will support and give strength to your speech.

Please refer to my plan and how I have chosen my best ideas to add to my speech.

10:30 -10:50

Break time/snack time


English - Speech writing 

L.O. To plan and write my speech  

SC1: I can explain what I know about speeches 

SC2: I can include FEARRR in my plan 

SC3: I can plan a speech with a clear and powerful structure 

In today’s English lesson, I would like you to use the time to plan and begin to write your own speech, linking it to this week’s challenge research. 

Before you start...let’s recap what we have learnt about speeches so far this week. 


·        What makes a good speech? 

·        What are the key features of a good speech? 

·        What does FEARRR stand for? 

·        What famous speeches do you know? 

·        What makes a good public speaker? 

Now watch this speech from Barack Obama to give you one final piece of inspiration... 



I would now like you to use your Challenge research and your knowledge of speech writing to help create your speech on your chosen topic.

Try to aim for one page of high quality writing and remember that the goal of your speech is to persuade others to believe in your message.

You will have the rest of the day to complete this part of the challenge.

12:00- 1:00


1:00- 2:30


Use the afternoon to complete your speech and then check it for punctuation and spelling errors.

Also, use this time to check that you have ticked off some of the key parts of a speech-writers checklist:

  • Have I got a clear structure and message? 

  • Is my language emotive? 

  • Have I included repetition? 

  • Have I included rhetorical questions? 

  • Does my speech make somebody change their mind or want to do something?
