A debatable subject!
The big crayon debate!
After campaigning for the rights of the crayons based on the text "The Day the Crayons Quit" last week, this week Year 3 explored other ways to voice opinions.
First, the children became familiar with persuasive devices, such as the use of powerful words and rhetorical questions. Later in the week these skills were put to use in class debates. We used the crayons' statements such as "Yellow is the real colour of the sun," as our motions to debate.
The children confidently expressed their opinions and a vote was taken at the end of each debate.
Campaigning for the crayons has been fun and has reinforced the message that in a democracy everyone has the right for their opinions to be heard.
On Friday we took part in some live Spanish sessions from Lingotot to celebrate the European Day of Language. The children especially enjoyed the Superhero and Minecraft themed activities.
We hope you will enjoy seeing some of the activity sheets they brought home.
