Balanced arguments have been a main theme around Year 6 this week. We introduced the pupils to the idea of having two different sides in a debate, and how you need to use good reasoning to help put across your point and be persuasive. We set the children the task of researching all about the topic of vivisection. We used a number of books, as well as online resources to help us find out more. We then asked the pupils to decide if they are for or against vivisection. Class 6 then held a balanced argument, with each speaker trying to influence the other class members. You can listen to a couple of our Year 6 pupils talking about their work in the podcast below.
