Today P6 debated the reasons for/against the use of cigarettes and alcohol.
We didn’t get a choice about which side we were on – we were given a side to be on, which was very difficult for us, as sometimes we were put on a side that we disagreed with.
Using the internet, we researched a variety of effects that smoking and drinking alcohol can have on our bodies. We used the NHS website to make sure that our information was reliable. We also used a variety of paper sources provided to us by Mr Torrens.
We debated across the classes by showing that we had a response with our hands on our head and we were allowed to respectfully argue across the room. Feel free to ask us what some of our arguments were.
