Our British Value focus was on plastic pollution and what Britain are doing to help tackle the problem. We thought about which different companies are helping this problem before focusing more on McDonald's. We looked at the fact that they have moved from plastic straws to paper straws. We thought about the pros and cons of each before we had to pick a side to support in a debate. We either had to agree with switching to paper straws or support the idea that they should bring back plastic straws. We all ended up passionately supporting our chosen side in a well explained debate by building on and arguing against other people's ideas. Some of us even changed our minds from our initial opinion!
