Daring Debating!

Our Year 5 and 6 students have leapt out of their comfort zones in the last couple of weeks and worked in teams to present as argument in from of their teachers and the whole year group! They were asked to structure an argument for or against a question given to them by the teachers that related to our current expedition. These included ‘Is there life on Mars?’ ‘Is space exploration a waste of money?’ and ‘Is it morally right to send animals into space?’ They demonstrated amazing teamwork skills whilst researching and writing their argument and then presented their case in the hall. Some pupils were very nervous about speaking in front of others but they all did it and we are very proud of their achievement!
