‘United Nations’ at Brookside 12/07/21
On Friday 2nd July, Year 5 Dakar class transformed the playground into a ‘United Nations debate chamber’, where they embraced their philosophical reasoning skills in a round of debates, while still remembering to be reflective and respectful.
To enhance these skills, the children ferociously researched, planned and wrote a one-sided argument to highlight national environmental issues. They successfully included many persuasive features to bring awareness to how littering and pollution negatively impacts on our environment.
The pupils have proven to be articulate and assertive, and ready to take on the challenges that may arise in Year 6.
