General Haig Speech

May 8th, 2014

After reading Martin Luther King and King George VI’s moving and powerful speeches we started to look at General Haig – Commander in Chief of the BEF.

 He commanded Battalions of men in the Somme offensive. Our task was to write the speech that he may have given to the troops before 1st July 1916.

 Together we decided on the rules of effective speech writing that we wanted to include. We felt these would have the most impact: 

Addressing the audience

Use of emotive language

Rule of 3

Repetition

 

Here is our shared write:

Today. Together. We will fight for our King and Country.

Today. Together. We will fight: united as one on the battlefield.

Today. Together. We will fight for our nation’s future.

The brotherhood I see before me is unique – courageous and valiant – willing to penetrate our enemy’s defensives no matter what the cost. We must move forward in order to break the silent stalemate, which currently stands before us.

 Our nation stands as a family with courage, pride & bravery, who will rid this great land of its foul stench. Upon this brave offensive depends the survival of Christian civilisation: we are the masters of our own fate, leaders in our own destiny.

The greatest point to remember is it can be done: it will be done! Done beyond any possibility of doubt.

Trust me as I stand before you.

Trust me as I stand beside you.

Trust me as we stand, side by side, united.

We will achieve a resounding victory over our enemies.

God will ‘Send us Victorious’.

We will prevail.

 

For King and Country – go forth – God speed.

 

Victory is ours!

Steve Jobs, Biography.

April 9th, 2014

Steve Jobs was born in San Francisco, California, on February 24th, 1955. In the late 1950’s, Jobs moved to Santa Clara County, California, to live there. In the 1960’s-1970’s, Jobs did not do well in a strict school and when he was tested, he moved to middle school.

In 1971, he enrolled to Homestead High school and when he was there, he met his new long life friend, Steve Wozniak. A few years later, in 1972, Jobs and Wozniak enrolled to Reed college, Portland, Oregon, where Jobs only attended classes that he really enjoyed. In 1974, they both started to work for Atari; as a video game designer. Then, Jobs started to create computers in his free time.

A few years later, in 1976, he started to make computers, with the help of Wozniak. Then, fifty Apple 1 computers were sold followed in 1977, Apple 2 computers went out on sale. Apple then became a multimillion dollar company. However Macintosh then went on sale and a couple of months later, they became poor. A few years later, in 1985, Jobs quit as CEO of Apple and bought the animation company called PIXAR.

Between 1986-1993, Jobs attempted to make and sell neXT computers failed while Jobs and PIXAR fought to stay open. In 1994, Toy Story opens and was a big hit. Microsoft was doing well, but in that time, Apple was failing. In 1997-1998, Apple buys neXT and Steve Jobs is boss and Powermac and Powerbook go on sale. Apple then takes over all the markets.
