This term, Year 6 has been discussing what makes a balanced argument. We have pondered many different questions, such as:
‘Should children eat chocolate?’
‘Should school uniform be banned?’
‘Are zoos a good idea?’
We have enjoyed discussing the pros and cons of each argument and tried to think of new and different ways to convince the other side to change their point of view. We particularly enjoyed holding the debate about whether children should eat chocolate. We elected a chairperson, Belle, who made sure that everyone’s opinions were heard – as per UNICEF’s rights for children (Article 14).
