Debatable

Debatable

These sheets are very much aimed at year 5/6 pupils. Over a number of years I created 'aids' and 'answers' for SATS questions The aim of the 'aid' was to give children ideas of the type of the vocabulary to use when answering a 'debate/ persuasive' style question and what type of information to include in their answers. Colleagues having seen the 'aid' sheet suggested I added some answers!! I have not given answers to all the questions.
