Debating Club at KS2

Discussion in 'Primary' started by kclehoucka, Dec 2, 2010.

  1. Hi - I have been thinking about setting a debating club up at our Junior School, probably for yrs 5&6, but really need some guidance as I'm not sure how to get started! Any advice would be great!
  2. Hi I am running a debating club for Year 5 and 6 and would love some shared ideas. Gerry
  3. Hi yes I'd love to hear how your debating club works. Any tips much appreciated.
  4. Hello
    I have been asked to set up a Debate Club for Year 5 pupils and I would be really grateful if you could share some ideas with me.
  5. I'd absolutely love some help with this! I read Social & Political Science at uni and love NOWT more than a good debate! Citizenship is one of the things that gets me most excited about being a teacher. Apathy makes me rage! I haven't taken the plunge and set it up, though, because I just haven't really been confident enough to know how to go about it and what format the sessions would take. I teach Y3 and don't know any of the upper KS2 chn so this scares me a bit, too, you know? Thanks so much for generously offering to share what you've been doing with us x

  10. This sounds great and I'd love to know the format for the sessions and the resources or inspiration you used. I've been wondering whether to use the thunks as inspiration for class debates but would be interested to know how you do it.
