Is homework a waste of time? Just an idea of the thought provoking questions up for debate in this set of activity cards. The topics have been carefully selected to engage older children in year 5 and 6 and give them the opportunity to talk about issues they can relate to. Each card gives tips on how to prepare a debate and how to deliver a convincing argument, as well as some pros and cons for each topic area, just to get started. Also included in the pack are ten 'Just a minute' cards, where children have to talk for just one minute on the selected topic, ideal as a warm up and to get children thinking on their feet. 50, A4 cards in total.
