Debating Fun!

14th March 2016

On Friday 26th February, eight Year 6 children represented Jubilee at the Hackney Debate Competition. They competed against two other schools on the topics, 'This house would abolish zoos' and 'This house believes all primary school children should learn a foreign language'.

The judges were really impressed with the structure of the children's speeches, the preparation that had gone into them and their ability to think on their feet. We were really impressed by how brave they were, how confidently they spoke and how respectful they were of the other teams, both during the debate and afterwards when they shook their hands and congratulated their efforts.

Out of 20 schools, they have made it into the final 8 at the end of May.
