The Big Question: Is it important to look smart when representing others?


Represent means, 'to be appointed to act or speak for someone'. Members of a sporting team, an MP (Member of Parliament), a lawyer and your parents/carers are representatives.


Have you represented someone else? Think about the clubs and Manea school you are part of and write them down. How does this make you feel? Think about these words to help you: proud, pressured, responsible.


To make a good first impression, you need to look smart as you are representing someone else. Is it important that your behaviour needs to be sensible, that you need to speak well and be knowledgeable about what you are representing? Write down your thoughts.


Recently, the news has reported that the plane representing and carrying the Prime Minister and the Royal Family is going to be repainted. It is going to be repainted in the UK colours of red, white and blue. This is so it provide a good first impression when it flies the Prime Minister and the Royal Family to other countries. However, it is going to cost the tax payer approximately £900,000.

Do you agree with the repainting of the plane? Provide a for and against argument.


Prepare and present your speech. If you are at home, video it and send it into the class email page. We look forward to seeing them!
