The pupils of Y4H conducted themselves in a very mature many to discuss an issue related to our Brrrr! topic this half term. They discussed the issue of schools closing due to bad weather and the impact on children's education. In groups they came up with questions they wanted to explore. The class then voted on the one question the felt they could discuss in depth:

Why do teenagers have to do their exams in the snow?

Their communication skills, especially listening to others, were fully tested and the wide ranging discussion proved enlightening for all!
