To help improve the children’s speaking, listening, and debating skills, this half term I will be sending some debate questions for pupils to discuss with adults or brothers and sisters at home.
These should be fun and quick to do and the idea is students will have a ten minute debate at home about what the best answer is to the question and why. In class we will then spend ten minutes discussing the questions on Fridays and the pupils with the best answers and reasoning will be given raffle tickets and house points.
Please have the debate and chat with pupils and encourage them to listen and respond to you and they must speak in full sentences when having the discussion.
Your first two questions are…
- Would you rather always hop like a kangaroo or walk sideways like a crab?
- Would you rather touch a person and it make them incapable of lying? Or touch a person and heal whatever is wrong with them?
Please remember to also continue to practise reading, timestables and spellings.
