Our debate question is: Was Boudicca right to rebel?

First the children read a book showing different people's opinions about whether Boudicca was right or wrong to rebel.

They made their decision and wrote their opinion and two reasons on a whiteboard.

Then the children moved to different parts of the room depending on their opinion.

The children in the middle were undecided.

Everyone had the chance to say their reasons while the rest of the class listened.

After the debate it was decision time!

The children had the chance to move if they had changed their minds.

At the end of the debate 12 children voted 'Boudicca was right to rebel' and 18 children voted 'Boudicca was wrong to rebel'.
