Athens vs Sparta Debate

January4

Year 5 have extended their Ancient Greek Week!

In the final week of term, we were learning more about the Ancient Greek cities of Athens and Sparta. As well as how to debate successfully, in preparation for the Ancient Greek city state debate.

Year 5 were split into Spartans and Athenians who prepared their speeches in defence of their city state.

The motion was that ‘Sparta was the best city state!’

After an interesting debate, the students voted, the proposers, Sparta the winning debating team. Well done Spartans!

However, a second vote determined that Athens was the city they thought would have been a better place to live in, during this period of history.
