if we make up the speech just wityh the PMI will there be some signal to say our times up

Skipper Bob said...

On the spot i mean

Kitty Kat said...

yes if we could have a signal to say that 30 seconds were up or something.
Can we just do normal notes. Not just a PMI??

mr woody said...

you won't need a signal. you just yack until you've said what you have to say. it's like having a conversation where you do all the talking. some people love that ;>)
as for notes, write it how you like. it's not meant to be arduous. simply do a PMI, think about the topic, then you will be ready to have a rave to a group.
hopefully you will have some interesting points.
don't spend too much time on it please.
the other speech is the important one. this is just practice.

Catarara said...

i've done my speech and i've kind of said well done to the french in it :-'
:-)

Miss Candy said...

Yeah done to the french, beating the best team in the world! B)

cheeseboy said...

i dont mind the speaking part but i just can't seem to write a speech.
mr and mrs llewelyn showed us that speech about nutrition and exercise but people say to do a personal speech but mr and mrs llewelyn they didn't show us how!

i'm totally lost and i need help BADLY. Can you help me plz mr woody
i haven't started because i don't know how to write a speech

mr woody said...

cheeseboy, i know it seems hard but you are wrong about not being shown how to do it. you have been shown many times over the years and again this year.
think about the hamburger method. think about paying attention in class.
think about telling a story with an intro, a main body and a summary at the end.
you can write about anything ... ANYTHING

we will talk in class tomorrow.
well done for using the blog to seek assistance.

IM A ROOM5IAN said...

cheese boy! they did show us the structure of a speech which i found really helpful -you should have the info on it somewhere.

yes, the french played really well and i think we just needed to really get in there and rugby with passion and pride -something which the french succeeded in and something we kind of lacked...........although the referee played a big part in the result -i thought their was only allowed 15 people on a team at once!!!! grrrrrrrrrr!!!!

also, check out this url for some great, easy-to-understand links about the sun and moon (this is very good for when you need to find out something in paticular).

mr woody said...

a fantastic and purposeful post again, room5ian. excellent work!
even the principal was telling me what an excellent pupil you are today. well done.
as for us going to meet the all blacks at the airport....

http://www.stuff.co.nz//4231584a1823.html

IM A ROOM5IAN said...

:) Thank you!

as for the url: awwwwwwww! oh well! although we could email them each a message in their support.... can you let me know if we will because i might do it individually if we dont....THEY ARE STILL GREAT!!! http://www.allblacks.com/index.cfm?layout=emailTeam

Catarara said...

GO THE ALL BLACKS! yes that si a shame...:(

Skipper Bob said...

yeah might be a tiny bit difficult to get to christchurch!!!!!!!!!

IM A ROOM5IAN said...

mmmmmm.....just a little....... :)
oh well....i am true All Black fan and i think that we should all stop moping and blaming, accept the loss, and get out out black clothes for the next game with respect, support, and loads of enthusiasm like true supporters!!!!!!!

focus on the positive things!!!! be optimistic!!!!!!

Alpha said...

Sad that the All blacks lost....
But the french must have played well to win....
The best team always wins

IM A ROOM5IAN said...

not nessessarily!

focus on the positive things!!!! be optimistic!!!!!!

Alpha said...

I don't see why everyone kinda hates the All Blacks right now..
I doubt they could play as good as them.
And they tried their best, for 4 years. And won lots of games in those years. So why does it matter that they loose this one game, they got to the quater finals, alot of countries didn't

Kitty Kat said...

Jono Gibbs lives around the corner from me..we could welcome him.
I think its pathetic that people go so crazy over that.
Mr Woody could you give us that judge sheet today. That will really help.

jimmy said...

got it

primprim said...

I feel sad that some people are suddenly hating the all blacks just because they've lost the quarter finals.
my speech is extra long so I have to take a few things out and I'll have to practice mine a lot because I'm not good at remembering.

Paper scissors said...

mr woody, the 2 main reasons i dont comment are
1:i hardly go on the blog
and 2: I cant think of anything to comment on.

Paper scissors said...

duz anyone else no how 2 use HTML?

IM A ROOM5IAN said...

We didnt really lose, we just didnt win!

SpUdArOoNy said...

who is paper scissors?
yeh.. i think the french played AWEOSMLY well.. congrtas... although i do think that the reff had abit of a say.. i am a true fan and i will NEVER HATE THEM!
they are soo cool!
go ABS!

my speech is on gya rights.. my mum taught me how to right it lol. 'cause i was out with production for most on jimmys mum and dad's sessions.. =[[

Skipper Bob said...

Paper Scissors: What do you mean HTML????????

IM A ROOM5IAN said...

paper scissors is the tallest guy in our class (not including mr woody)

even though we didnt get to see the All Blacks, they still had a whole lot of support....http://www.stuff.co.nz/4232727a10.html

.......poor AB's, they probably feel ten time worse than the most disapointed of us. I am also really impressed with the way Grahem Henry stuck to his guns and dosnt regret any of his stratergies and i really admire that.

Howlett, 29, was arrested about 3am on Tuesday London time (3pm NZ time) after police were called to a disturbance outside Heathrow Airport's Hilton Hotel, where team members were staying before flying home after their World Cup quarter-final loss to France.
Shamed All Black Doug Howlett has made a video apology to New Zealanders, saying his arrest in London was the result of alcohol-fuelled "tom foolery".
