Graduation Speech: What are you thankful for?

Do you have to give an end of year speech to Graduating students? Here’s one that I have used for students graduating Year 6 however it can easily be used for a wide range of ages. Used for a Christian school but could be easily adapted to a secular school.

Stage Types

Stage Types

This resource is a PowerPoint where on each slide is a stage type: thrust stage, end on stage, in the round and traverse stage. I have printed (A3) and laminated each slide to display in my dance studio. I refer to the stage types at KS3 when asking pupils to sit in the audience, ready for a class performance/assessment. “Year 7, take your places in the audience of a thrust stage.” This is also really useful to use as an aid for class management. At KS4, the display acts as a revision aid.
