This morning Year 3/4 brainstormed reasons for and against riding bikes to school. We then discussed as a class the different aspects and roles of debating. Students came up with a range of sensible and imaginative reasons for and against. I allocated roles and sent them back to their groups. We finished the lesson with several students who were extremely passionate debating in front of the class who then voted in favour of riding to school (of course!).
Thank you to Miss Creevy for this great activity that linked to Literacy.
