Debating Competition

Wednesday 28h March saw the final of the debating competition between Bevois Town Primary School and Mansbridge Primary School. Initially, students practiced the skills they learnt from the initial session through the telephone game in order to build their confidence. Then, in an exciting event, the students from years 4 & 5 debated whether ‘Schools Days Are the Best Days of Your Life’ and ‘Children Shouldn’t be Stopped From Using the Internet.’ Schools were split into teams of 4 and given a side to debate from, whether they agreed with that side or not! They were given some time to prepare an argument for their side and then faced their opposition. Students all worked really well and debated with exceptional clarity but the overall winners were Mansbridge Primary. Well done Mansbridge.
