In my literacy class, the Year Fives have been using 'The Day the Crayons Quit' as a motivation for persuasion in the form of a debate. I was umming and ahhing whether they were going to get into it or think it was a bit too young for them but we had a very passionate debate from them in Friday's lesson. Oliver Crossman wanted to speak for the whole time, Matty wanted to speak for the whole time, Olly Young came in with some passion and drive. Alex made some outstanding points, Sam made sure his ideas had been heard. Daniel at one point even slammed the table! Who knew that the boys would be so engrossed with debating if crayons should quit?
