From the Writers’ Corner: ‘The Great Debate, Runway Three’

Posted on: March 18th 2013

As part of our Geography focus week, Form 6 worked extremely hard in their English lessons to create an investigative documentary about plans for a third runway at Heathrow Airport. The children work collaboratively to research, plan, script, direct and film the documentary, resulting in an impressive final film.

After that everyone had one chance to ask someone a question, make a statement, or answer a question. After that, each group chose one person to have a one on one debate. From the against group it was Sanjay, Mr Greenpeace, and from the for group it was Ishmael, the Government Minister. At the end the parents chose which side they agreed with, and the group for runway three won by three votes. Please check out the video link showing the debate.
