This year for the first time Atlas Primary has set up a Debating Society, which allows for children to practise, rehearse and argue various issues of interest. We are in a competition with Green Lane Primary and Springwood Primary. Every half term a debating issue will be raised, and two teams will debate the issue whilst the third team judges. The judging team are looking for clarity of voice, appropriate language, ability to work as a team and also create a convincing argument.
On the 22nd of October, the Debating Society had their first competition. It was held at Green Lane and the Atlas team had to debate an issue against Springwood. The Atlas team impressed the Green Lane judges so much that they won! They all debated fantastically and confidently. The next debate will be held at Springwood, and will be against Green Lane on the 10th December.
