Woodland Debate

Class 4 were tasked with the challenge to argue the pros and cons of deforistation to create mining sites, land for new housing and land for improved road links. The children argued from various points of view such as the mining company, a housing developer, a local family, a forester and a conservationist. All the children produced convincing arguments which gave some close decisions in the resulting vote. Everyone learnt a lot about the importance of looking after our woodland,  the importance of living a sustainable lifestyle and what we can do to help.
