Deforestation Debate!

A year group divided? When you think of what might cause split loyalties between a year group (a football rivalry, favourite popstars, who we want to win our favourite TV show etc) deforestation would hardly be at the top of your list.

Best friends opposed each other. Siblings were on rival sides, as the debate heated up in class. We have been learning about the arguments for and against deforestation and looked to make persuasive arguments, and counter the arguments made from the other side. Sorry parents, we now know how to argue our point better, and turn your arguments against you - we'll never fail to get our own way ever again!!

We also had a visit from the Fire Service, talking about fire safety, potential hazards and ways of preventing fire and what to do in an emergency. We've got a booklet to fill in too, with the chance of potentially winning a prize!!
