The children took on the role of Hansel or Gretel. They were interviewed by another child in the class and they had to imagine how they felt at various points throughout the story.
The first part of the lesson involved the children reading and writing various question words.
They then went into role and answered a selection of questions; What was your stepmother like? How did you feel when you were left in the woods? What was the sweet house like? What did you think about the witch? How did you feel when you saw your father again?
The children all enjoyed this and took on the roles well.
