As part of our rainforest work in Topic and Literacy, we did some hot seating on Friday. We had already done some writing about the rainforest, both fiction and non-fiction, so we decided that a bit of role play would help us develop our understanding.
First we thought about questions that we would ask a boy who lived in the rainforest, and then with our partners, we compiled a list. We knew that we could only ask open questions so that we could really allow the person in the hot seat to shine.
Of course, we had some props to help us to get into character — if we wanted them!
