Debate Club (Friday)

Debate club runs every Friday with Mr Watkins in the conference room from 12:50-1:20.

 

We have started off learning some of the language of debating, in particular:

  • Proposition
  • Opposition
  • Argument
  • Refutation

 

Having started to make simple arguments, we are moving onto making more complex arguments using a 'PEEL' structure. As we develop our skills, we will move on to having full debates with four children on each side.

Please read your email or look in the noticeboard section for full details. Please stay safe and we look forward to welcoming you back on 1 September 2020.
