Interesting Open ended Discussions in Y3S

Today in Literacy Miss Sare decided to host an oracy based live lesson whereby children had the chance to give their opinions on really open ended philosophical style questions.

Children were encouraged to share their thoughts, listen to some of their class friends giving their opinions and building on their points or explain if they agreed or disagreed with their points.

Miss Sare and Mr Whitehouse were really impresssed with their ideas.

Elio’s explanation that it’s ok to steal because that’s what animals often do was really thought evoking, Ava and Amber then built on that by saying that Mr Fox needed to feed his family and that they might die if they don’t steal.

Layla respectfully disagreed and said they could go and find their own food from more natural places.
