The children had a great time in the Year 6 classroom on World Book Day. The Year 6 book was ‘Gangsta Granny’. This book has been adapted into a film so we began by watching a short clip of some acting. We used this as inspiration for our very own role-play. We warmed up first by acting out different ages – baby, toddler, teenager and old person. The children moved about in different ways in order to make it clear which age they were. Following this, the children were given an extract from the book: the moment that Ben discovers his Granny’s emeralds and jewels. The children used the extract and added some of their own dialogue and actions. The children then acted this out and showed it to the rest of the class at the end of the lesson. There were some fantastic performances. Well done!
