Learning Objective: To hotseat a character.
I can take turns
I can ask a question
I can answer a question using full sentences.
Vocabulary: hot seating, character, background, behaviour, setting, main character, questions, answers
Purpose of the learning: To deepen their understanding of a character.
Starter: Deduce from children where the story was, who the characters were and discuss some of the key events.
Adult: Elicit from your child who a story character is. Reinforce their ideas.
Tell your child that they’re going to hot seat a favourite character.
Explain the word hotseating- a drama strategy in which a character is played by an adult or child and the rest of the class interviews the character.
Decide on a character with your child, either Laszlo or the Dark.
Brainstorm with your child the range of questions that can be posed to the character, for example:
Adult to model being in the hot-seat by modelling being ‘in character’; answering questions
whilst ‘in character’; and using a range of new and extensive vocabulary
Ask your child to be in the hotseat.
Model asking your child in the hotseat probing questions, (for example, their view point or in the role of another character from the story, that is a different character’s perspective / viewpoint)
Reframe any questions if needed and support your child's responses if they are unclear.
How did they feel being in the hotseat? Were they able to answer most of the questions asked?
How did they feel being asked questions from the point of view of another character?
