Predicting what will happen next in the story
As we reached the end of 'The Great Kapok Tree', the children were left wondering what could have happened next.
The children worked in pairs to play two of the characters in the story and roleplayed their own ideas.
It was incredible to watch the children not only develop new dialogue between the characters but also begin to create a balanced argument, using some debating skills. They were able to justify their reasons for wanting the tree cut down and not wanting to cut the tree down.
They used emotion within their voices and their facial expressions really brought the characters to life!
