This morning we all took a turn being in the hot seat! We had to choose from one of three characters from the story War Horse, then we asked questions to either Charlie Warren, Captain Nicholls or Corporal Perkins. The replies had to be in character using knowledge from the text to assist us and we could use our imagination too! We enjoyed the activity and as the session went on we got better and better at asking and answering questions such as “Corporal Perkins, why are you so cruel to the soldiers and horses?” Alex replied in character “I have to be tough on everyone to keep them at their best and at the cutting edge if I let them off then they will not do so well” Iona also answered the same question in character saying “If people are not at their best we will not win the war, if we want to win we have to be at our best.”
