As part of British Science Week, all of our pupils researched a famous British scientist. They then wrote and presented to their classmates about why they felt their chosen scientist was the most important of all time. Winners of each class debate were chosen by pupils in each class. These winners then took part in a house debate with other winners from their year group, so that one representative from each house per year group were found. These twelve children then presented their ideas in a debate in a whole school assembly. All of the children represented Air, Earth, Fire or Water house really well and impressed the three judges (Mrs Evans, Mrs Checketts and Mrs Small) with their confidence and ideas. In the end the following were chosen as the most persuasive speakers so were the winners of the 2016 Science Debate:
Year 5 - Jordan (Water)
Year 6 - Maisie (Water)
Year 7 - James (Water)
These pupils earned five house points each for their house!
Finally, the overall winner was Jake in Air house, who earned ten points for his house!
