We all responded to this question individually and created a wall in our classroom.

    WOW! What a powerful display. Can any of you summarise the feeling of the class on this matter?

      Thank you, on behalf of our whole class!! Very sorry you can't see the detailed words we spent time thinking about, then finally writing.
      As I'm sure you already know, we were told to pick a statement ("Freedom of Movement is a Human Right" or "People Should Be Able To Move Wherever They Like") and decide why they agree with it, and use facts, along with evidence, to back it up. Sort of like an argument (in fact - I think it might've been!).
      Our whole class (I'm sure) thought similar things; that freedom of movement is indeed a human right, and that people are allowed to move wherever they want. We used 4 different "scenarios", or events that happened in history - The Great Wall of China, The Berlin Wall, The Hungary-Serbia Border Wall, and The Korean Demilitarized Zone - and facts we saw in a PowerPoint; for example, in 2017, 258 MILLION people were living in countries they weren't born in. We all agreed that people of power limiting the Public's freedom was unacceptable. Though, we looked at how the Chinese Emperor built the Great Wall of China to protect his land and his people - so it WAS acceptable in some cases!
      Thanks again for the star!!

      (Note: I'm probably the first one in my class to notice this - I don't know - but we have moved from 4th place to the top of the leaderboard as a school!! With 119 stars!! I'm so thrilled! Thanks a lot!!)
