Year 6 Atomic debate

Was it right to drop the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki to end World War in the Pacific?

Year 6 conducted a debate around this question, eloquently exploring the arguments on both sides; pupil’s passionately argued and challenged each other in order to pick apart the arguments for and against dropping the bombs. It was delightful to see such mature discussion and to read the subsequent excellent reports pupils wrote.
