Year 4 – Should boys learn cookery?
The big debate!
This week in Los Angeles and Washington, we have been looking at discussion texts. The children have looked at the features of the text, identifying the differences between fiction and non-fiction writing.
The first text we studied was ‘Should boys learn cookery?’ After great discussion, you’ll be glad to know that Year 4 decided that boys should learn to cook.
From this we then debated other issues, such as ‘Should children have homework’ and ‘Should children have mobile phones’.
Next week, we will write our discussion texts, using the points discussed in our class debate, so we will let you know the answers to these pressing questions!
