Well done to our team of Year 6 pupils who represented the school in the County Council debating competition. They had to debate: “Do you think our climate is changing?”, presenting both sides of the argument as well as asking and answering questions. Our area heat took place in the Selby District Council chambers and was judged by a panel of local, district and county councillors.
Our team were fantastic! They spoke very clearly and articulately and had obviously researched the topic thoroughly. Unfortunately, they didn’t win but did represent our school extremely well and should be proud of themselves. They learnt a lot about the political process and experienced speaking in a large venue. Despite a large amount of evidence for and against the motion, they remain undecided and climate change continues to be a topic of debate!
