Following on from our learning last week of the different occupations on board a pirate ship, Room 7 had a lot of fun completing applications for a job of their choice. We focused on using a range of persuasive language and statements, as well as reflecting on our interests, skills and experiences. In our learning partners, we then dramatised interview scenarios, asking relevant questions and giving clear and appropriate responses. Some of the interviewers were rather serious and asked questions like “are you afraid of sharks?” and “how would you feel if you lost a hand in a fight and had to get a hook?” Luckily, we all exuded confidence, gave impressive answers and we were all hired! We set sail at the end of this week!
