Role Playing Characters


Year 4 have been exploring role play in English, in order to get to know the characters in the story 'I was a Rat! Or the Scarlet Slippers' better.

In our virtual classroom, the children from Skylarks and Kestrels watched a video of their teachers doing a role play as the characters Bob and Joan being interviewed by a newspaper reporter.  You can watch it here. We learnt about Bob and Joan's feelings through their answers to carefully planned questions, and we got to see the story from their point of view.

Afterwards, the children role played the characters themselves in the live session, using the questions they had carefully written, and their knowledge of the story. Their role plays were fantastic, they really got into role!

Finally, the children wrote up their questions and answers. Here is some of their work:   


Well done Skylarks and Kestrels!


What did the children think of these lesson activities?

Caleb said, "I think everyone did a great job with the role playing."

Ella commented, "I liked watching people role-playing it was very fun to watch."

"The acting was cool and funny it showed a lot. I learnt how Bob and Joan felt and I learnt how to be a news reporter," explained Joshua.

"I like that you were saying thing from Bob and Joan’s point of view," added Gracie.

Holly thought, "it was not just funny it was also helping us learn. We learnt a little bit more about Bob and Joan".


Keep up the great work Year 4!
