Choral Speaking at Truro Music Festival

‘Choral Speaking’ is working together as a team in order to ‘act out’ a poem using voices and sometimes actions.

Class 7 have been working on ‘Oh, Oh The Story Man’ for several weeks, ensuring light and shade, good expression and diction as well as a change of pace and tone, at times using individual voices as well as working as a whole class.

We attended the Truro Music Festival on Monday 12th March, where we performed our poem.  Two other schools took park, reciting the same poem.  Class 7 performed extremely well and won the shield, gaining 87 marks with distinction!

The judges said: “Good discipline today – loud/soft and the sound of the snail moment was lovely!  The dragon moment was impactful too!”
