A visit from the wolf
The children had a visit from the wolf of our story of the week ‘Little Red RIding Hood’. The children from puffin class used the ‘hot seating’ method to understand more about the wolf and his motives.
Hot-seating focuses closely on a character and enables motivation to be explored. It is also a good way of exploring the gaps in a character’s story. Hot-seating involves the class in asking questions of someone in role as a character, fictional or historical, who sits in the ‘hot-seat’.
“The wolf isn’t so bad. He was just trying to play with Little Red Riding Hood. He just needs to learn what’s the right and wrong way to play games because tricks aren’t funny.” Rihanna
