This term in the Eaton Grange Experience, Year 8 are having some intensive revision sessions in the run up to CE.
Year 7 are doing Public Speaking and Debating. Â Today we had a very lively session and all the pupils took part in a debate. Â We had discussed the strategies for formulating a convincing argument – not always easy if you don’t believe it – but a great skill for debating and essay writing. Â The debates were entertaining and some of the points presented were very persuasive. Â The motions of “This house believes that people should not keep animals as pets and that cars should be banned in towns” were voted down. Â The motion “This house believes that school should not be compulsory” was agreed (!) and there was a split vote on “This house believes that school holidays are too long”. Â Everybody worked very hard and participated confidently.
