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.

Our online 'live' lessons are running well. We would like to say a huge thank you to our parents, carers and staff for their hard work in making this happen. We are pleased to see so many children interacting with their class teachers in these difficult circumstances. Keep safe.
