Today the children in Year 2 were debating whether or not “The Great Fire of London was the best thing that ever happened to London.” We discussed what a ‘peaceful’ debate looked like and they decided which side they supported more. It was hard to decide for some of them! Then we had a class debate – just like in the House of Commons. Lots of strong arguments were heard from each side.

What do you think?
