Debate Mate launch
On Tuesday 5th November, ten children from Upton Cross represented the school at the opening launch for Debate Mate. This involved two of own students taking to the stage to perform a live debate in front of around 200 other children from schools around London. The event was a resounding success and, no doubt, inspired many of the other children in attendance to raise their debating game throughout the year! Click here to watch us perform live!
Debate Mate Competition - Urban Debate League (Click Here)
On Wednesday 26th February, our Year 5 debaters had the opportunity to put their debating skills to the test in the first round of the Year 5 Urban Debate Mate League. Held at William Tyndale Primary in Highbury, Upton Cross came up against some stiff opposition and had to be on top form. It gives us great pleasure to announce that Upton Cross won all of their 4 debates - placing them in a great position to proceed to the next round. Well done!
