Aims of the project
These are essentially 'learning debates' where younger pupils can gain experience and confidence
John Lyon School English Department teaching staff worked with their counterparts at Whitmore High School
The pupils learnt a great deal from facing 'unknown' peers, everyone gained valuable debating experience and their confidence has grown
Year 7 & 8 pupils from both Schools
