Let’s get talking this lockdown!

Posted on: February 10, 2021

Welcome to another Oracy Challenge – here we go!

Each week we will be posting critical thinking challenges for you to try at home!

This is an essential problem-solving skill which will also develop the communicative ability of our students – just disguised in fun and bizarre discussion topics!

Yet again want to hear the outcome of these challenges so comment on our Facebook/Twitter post on how your discussions go and which season is the best.

Tough Cookie!

This is an important debate. One we have had many a time when making a cup of tea!

If you could only have one biscuit for the rest of your life what would it be?

There is a range of factors to consider here:

  • Is it good enough to dunk in a cup of tea?
  • Is it good enough to eat alone without a cup of tea?
  • Could you face only eating this type forever?
  • What makes it superior to all the others?


  • You can only choose one
  • You have to be able to justify why

Top Tips:

  • Provide evidence
  • Maintain eye contact
  • Make your point clearly
  • Agree and disagree politely
