Y5 have been getting to grips with debating!
In geography, Year 5 have been researching the tropical rainforest. We used our facts to create fantastic non-chronological reports, which were aimed at a younger audience. Continuing our topic in English, we used our information from geography to write a balanced argument, where we made points for and against the destruction of the rainforest. Finally, we held a gripping debate, where both sides put across their views clearly and confidently. Countering points were well-made, and views were backed up with strong evidence. Everyone did so well - it was a fantastic debate. Well done Year 5!
