On Wednesday 3rd October, the year 6 pupils held a debate related to their topic, The Greatest Showman. The debate was to discuss whether or not it was acceptable for P.T. Barnum to use ‘oddities’ in the circus or whether in fact he is jut exploiting them to make money.
The debate was a great experience for the children; they thoroughly enjoyed getting into their roles as people such as: P.T Barnum himself, Jenny Lind and the oddities who performed for Barnum. The oddities that the children played included the Bearded Lady, JoJo the Dog Boy and the Irish Giant.
