Inter-school debating event

Y4 & Y5 pupils across the Trust took part in a debating programme this term. The motions they discussed included:  

•    Children under 14 should be allowed to do paid work

•    Children should be allowed to strike against climate change in school-time

•    Children should have longer breaks in the school day

They enjoyed learning about and discussing these topics in class with their teachers and a Learning Improvement Consultant.  The programme finished with an inter-school’s competition where the children demonstrated their debating skills.
