Year 4- Literacy Role Play

4th February 2020
Year 4 Role Play

As part of their ‘Potions’ topic, Year 4 have been reading Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s stone as a class, focusing on the characters of Harry, Ron and Hermione and the challenges they face in the book. To help the children gain a deeper understanding of the characters thoughts, feelings and emotions- in groups - they came up with their own challenges for Harry, Ron and Hermione to face, and role played their favourite one to the class. They focused on the character’s feelings during the challenges, and how they could express these feelings using their body language, facial expressions and tone of voice. The children enjoyed performing their finished pieces to the class, and using the role play to aid them in their writing.
