Year 6 Balloon Debate Back to Archive
20th October 2017

Last Friday, Year 6 boys enjoyed the annual Balloon Debate.  Boys had been working on persuasive writing techni

ques and speeches in their English lessons and their efforts were voted on in class, ready for the Final. 
There were a huge range of characters represented in the debate from Ada Lovelace to Sir Tim Berners-Lee, and a very high quality of speeches from all finalists.

Boys winning their 'balloon' heat were: Charlie A as Winston Churchill, Daniel M-S as Alexander Fleming, River W as Abraham Lincoln, and Robin C-C as Mohammed Ali.  The overall winner was Daniel as Alexander Fleming!  Very well done!

A very enjoyable and impressive event! Well done to all Year 6 boys!
