Dilemmas in literacy! By Max and Rayan

Today in literacy was really superb because Miss Martindale told us some dilemmas and we had to pick the options and vote with our feet by moving to the different corners of the room; strongly agree, agree, strongly disagree and disagree. One of the dilemmas were ‘stealing is always wrong’ the next one was ‘your friends and family should always come first’ and ‘you should do what is best for family no matter what ‘.
People all had different ideas and some people were talking and disagreeing (but in a polite way!).
The next thing we did was read the fantastic Mr. Fox that Miss typed up on the computer. We read it and then shared our opinions. It was like an argument but just not mean. After that we got into groups of 3. One was the presenter one the fox and one the farmer. In our groups we had to role play and in interview Then some girls recorded there role play on the mac. You can hear it below.
It was hard because you kept changing your mind when you heard different people say what they thought!
