We have had a busy week this week getting ready for the debates we did in class as part of our democracy topic! We worked in teams to prepare our argument for or against a topic of importance to us. Some examples of the debates we had were:
- Whether people who don’t need a car should be allowed one
- Whether plastic, single use water bottles should be banned
- Whether male and female athletes should train and perform sports together
- Whether people who earn over a certain amount should have to give money to charity every month
Very interesting and quite difficult topics for debate!
We are looking forward to a restful, fun week off after a busy and full term!
