'Flat Earth' and Spherical Earth' Theories 


Our children have been researching "Flat Earth' and 'Spherical Earth' theories to host their own Scientific debate. Using the evidence given, the children structured their 'propositional' and 'oppositional' arguments. The children used ambitious scientific vocabulary to articulate their reasoning for their conclusions.  They listened carefully to the points of view from the other side so that they could challenge each others evidence with a rebuttal. 


"I enjoyed engaging with the 'Opposition' as I knew my evidence for a 'Spherical Earth' was more substantial than theirs." - Isla
