Dino Debate

22nd January 2019
In Ash class, the children prepared for and held a debate. They investigated the four main theories for the extinction of dinosaurs and each group then presented their views to the whole class following strict debating rules (proposer, seconder, chairperson). The children stood when they wanted to speak and had to actively listen to each other to either respond or follow a point.
Mrs Budgen was very pleased with how well the children joined in, followed the debating rules and with the children's contributions. The class concluded that the extinction was most likely to have been a combination of theories rather than one specific theory, as they all had similar effects.
