Friday 19th March

In Year 6 this week there was a ‘diplomatic’ exchange of words up and down the corridor as the children took part in a debate based on the book we have been reading in our Big Reading lessons called When The Mountains Roared.  In the story, Ruby (the main character) and her family suddenly move to India from Australia after her Dad gets himself into a bit of trouble and, understandably, she wasn’t very happy.  In our debate we were exploring whether Dad was right to move the entire family and whether or not Ruby was unreasonable in how she reacted.  For once, the teachers had very little to say and could barely get a word in as the children gave their own opinions and points of view in a very mature way.
