Year 4 Explore Morality

05 september 2016

Year 4 have been reading the fascinating story of ‘The Iron Man’ as part of their narrative unit in Literacy. A key part of this has been exploring the thoughts and feelings of the key characters, including a boy called Hogarth.

  • Year 4 Explore Morality

During the story, Hogarth lures the Iron Man into giant pit, trapping him in there and protecting the villagers. Hogarth then feels a twinge of guilt about his actions. The children used a drama technique called a ‘Conscience Corridor’ to explore this idea. A pupil playing the part of Hogarth walked down the pathway created by the children’s positions and arm linking. The children proceeded to give Hogarth their views on his actions, and asked him to make a moral judgement of right or wrong on his actions, following his hearing of their opinions. Everyone enjoyed being part of the corridor, and the lucky participants who got to travel through it agreed that it was a difficult final decision to make, especially given that they were hearing more than 20 voices within a 20 second time span! As one member of 4B said afterwards, ‘it certainly made learning fun!’
