We are currently learning about
Leon and the Place Between
By Angela McAllister.
Today in English, we reached a crucial part in the book. Leon (the main character) climbs on to the stage and starts to enter the box that Abdul Kazam (the magician) has bought on stage with him.
The children had to think about what advice they would give Leon to either encourage him to go in the box, or stop him from going in. We then did a drama activity called Conscience Alley, where the children formed two lines facing each other. One side was for Leon going in the box and the other side was against. Leon (acted by Aubrey) walked through the alley, listening to the childrens advice.
At the end of the activity, Leon said he had been persuaded and WAS going to go into the box!!!!
