Primary school kids get to the heart of the debate

Rugby Editorial 26th Feb, 2019   0

PUPILS at Cawston Grange Primary School enhanced their debating skills during a visit by students from Rugby High School.

Eight pupils from Year 6 constructed their arguments before partaking in a final debate – on the thorny issue of homework – at the end of the school day.

Rebecca, a pupil who took part, said: “I was surprised by how fun debating was but I never knew you had to be so serious.

“I also learnt that when you are debating, you have to communicate with your team-mates and work together.”

The eight pupils who took part are now due to act as mentors for the rest of Year 6 when they hold their own formal debates later this term.
