Holding a debate in Maple Class

We have been sharing the wordless picture book Journey by Aaron Becker and our loving exploring the detailed artwork and creating our own narratives for this story.  As part of our work on this book we held a debate as to whether the girl in the story should or should not go through the red door she had drawn into the city.

All members of the class took turns to clearly state their point of view and give the reasons – we do need more practise on how we challenge each other when it was opened up for discussion after but are looking forward to practising our debating skills further.
