- eye contact,
- a clear voice with enough volume for the audience to hear it easily.
Note: All children are expected to learn and present a poem to their class. Hopefully lots will be confident to aim for competition level. Poems selected should be a suitable level for each child to achieve success.
Children aiming to enter the competition will need to choose a poem with that in mind.
