Meet in the park!
The Great Debate - Freezywater Saint George's C of E Primary School, Enfield
Year Three children visited Forty Hall Park.  They learnt a lot about the trees in the park, and found out that the park used to belong to Forty Hall, a beautiful old house nearby.  Back at school next day, they organised a great debate.  They pretended that property developers wanted to buy the park, and build houses for homeless people all over it.   Half the class wrote down reasons why the park should be saved, and half of them wrote down reasons why the houses should be built. They presented their ideas to each other, and took a vote on their decision.  They found that good debate can change people's minds!!  Then they designed posters on the computer to support their point of view.
