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.
