Just before half-term, 12 lucky students from across years 5 and 6 were chosen to attend the launch of Debatemate.
Debatemate is a fantastic program where pupils learn useful skills such as public speaking, how to deliver a balanced argument, and how to get their point across. It is also excellent for confidence building, but most importantly- it is fun! This is our fourth year now of running this course, and we have had nothing but positibe feedback from the pupils.
At the launch, pupils got to go to Manchester University and learn all about the skills they will be developing over the year, and had an opportunity to watch a show debate. This got them very excited for the year ahead!
