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.
