Welcome to 6LH. Our teacher is Miss Hammond.
We have Mrs Eveson and Mrs Evans who are teaching assistants working across the two classes.
Discover Debating consists of weekly, hour-long sessions led by an oracy mentor from the English-Speaking Union. In these lessons students are given the opportunity to practise skills essential to debating. Some of these skills include: justifying opinions and arguments, using body language to support spoken language and being able to read visual cues. The children mostly work collaboratively during the sessions (building on the ideas discussed previously), but are also afforded the opportunity to voice individual opinions and arguments. Every child is expected to contribute to the lessons in some form; often they do not even realise they are making use of the skills taught! This undoubtedly improves confidence when speaking in front of peers, but does so in a fun and engaging way, encouraging children to voice their opinions on topics of interest to them. As well as boosting students' self-esteem and competency in communication, debating and public speaking have also been found to impact positively on student attainment across the curriculum. We are very lucky to be involved in the Discover Debating programme and look forward to seeing the impact it has!
