Debate in Year 8

Debate is an integral part of developing our oracy skills. The year 8's in Repton, after reading the novel Oliver Twist, participated in a debate to discuss whether Oliver, the main protagonist in the novel, deserves to have a better life or not despite him being an orphan. The students came up with interesting as well as valid arguments as well as counter arguments and the students enjoyed brainstorming ideas to come up with points to discuss. The debate ended amicably and at the end it was not about who won or lost, but it was about how well they worked as a team and how much of confidence did they develop while they spoke in front of the class.
