To conclude our work on the text ‘Fantastic Mr Fox’ by Roald Dahl, we held a debate arguing for and against Stealing. We looked closely at the character Mr Fox and considered his actions (how he stole to provide for his family); motivations and the consequences of his stealing for both himself and other characters within the story. We had some excellent points to support our views, and were able to provide examples from the text to strengthen our arguments. In the end, our class vote was very decisive! 9 pupils voted that Stealing is Never Justified; whilst 16 voted that it is justified in certain circumstances! A super end to an absolutely ‘fantastic’ book!
