Year 6 debate – is the World Cup Fair?

This week, Year 6 are discussing whether the World Cup is fair or not. In Maths, we are looking at FIFA rankings, relative incomes and other statistics to establish how fair the competition really is.

In Literacy we are debating the same question but also talking about gender equality with regard to worldwide participation in the game of football. As ever, the children are amazing me with their maturity when debating and their compassion when talking about issues of inequality on a global level.
