At the request of the children, a new activity was added to Golden Time on Friday afternoon – Debating!  A mixed age collection of children all selected this as their ‘golden’ option for the last half hour of the day and they set about debating the contentious question of whether children should have to wear school uniform or not.  They divided into opposing sides and spent some time constructing their arguments, before respectfully challenging each other on their points of view.  A very welcome addition to our academy.
