Role play fun - but silence is golden!

User Rating:  / 0

We have done lots of role play this week and used this to explore areas of different subjects.

In Science, we used our learning and the understanding that we have developed to act out the life cycle of a plant. We revisited key vocabulary and reminded oursleves of how plants begin, grow and then reproduce. It was great fun and we showed the wealth of knowledge that we have gained throughout the unit of work.

We also used role play in our RE work. We focused throughout the week on contemplation and on the values of honesty and attentiveness. We looked at stories from different religions to develop our understanding of these qualities and discussed why they are important and the ways that we can show these attributes through our behaviour and attitude.

For our final lesson, we looked at the story of Noah and we were set the challenge of working togethwer to retell the story as a silent movie. We had to work in silence for the entire activity and explore alternative ways to communicate using facial expressions and gesture and then we performed in silence too, sequencing our individual group role plays to recreate the whole story. It was great fun and we rose to the challenge well.
