Boxing match debate

This video, funded by Linklaters’ Learn for Work and featuring pupils from Holmleigh Primary School in Hackney, features one of the Noisy Classroom team’s favourite activities: “Roll up, roll up for the Boxing Match Debate!”

Boxing Match Debates are a great fun, dramatic way to involve large numbers of students in an activity, as each speaker from the Blue Corner and the Red Corner is backed up by their “coaches”, who regularly provide support and advice from the ringside.

The video is ideal either for use in teacher CPD, or as a starter / stimulus to show to pupils at the start of a lesson.

The video on this page streams from Vimeo, one of the web’s most trusted providers. A few schools block Vimeo; if yours is one of them, use the backup video link below. If neither of these videos work for you, please get in touch.

The video was kindly funded by Linklaters.
