Straight from the classroom: Lower 1 impress with their debating skills

I had the pleasure today of joining Lower 1 for a formal structured debate about whether zoos ought to be banned. It is always a pleasure to go to the Lower 1 room and see the high level of enthusiasm and engagement from our youngest students. Previously, I have written about the importance of high academic expectations and what I saw here demonstrated this perfectly. The debate was not an unfocussed discussion, but a rigorously structured event, with particular roles and reflection afterwards on what could have been improved. The students were capable of giving spontaneous points of information and presenting logical arguments.
