Debating in LKS2

LKS2 are carrying out debates over the next two weeks as part of Project Based Learning. They are debating whether August should be homeschooled by his mum or whether he should go into school using evidence from the text ‘Wonder’.

The children have prepared mini speeches and made parts up as they listened and responded to each other. They have been given the opportunity to listen and respect each other’s right to share their views even if they do not agree with them.

The book reminds us to choose kindness, compassion, care and love for one another which is what was reflected in the children as they carried out their debate.
