This week started of with year 3 discovering a terrible crime in our classroom! An awful mess was left and taped off. We found what appeared to be items belonging to a granny, some paw prints and a threatening letter from a woodcutter!
Carefully we bagged all the evidence and then created a list of evidence. After that we took our own fingerprints to discount ourselves as suspects and learnt about how fingerprints can be used to help solve crimes.
Next we created reports explaining what we think happened and how we intend to solve the crime. Our current theories are:
a) A wolf kidnapped Granny because paw prints were found at the scene of the crime
b) The woodcutter kidnapped Granny because she owes him £2000 for chopping down her trees.
c) Granny has faked her kidnapping to avoid paying the woodcutter.
Hopefully the suspects will be caught soon so we can interview them and decide who is the guilty party.
Then later on in the week on Friday we were very lucky to work with Lorraine an artist from Stroud to make recyclable sculptures which will be used in the bug and sculpture trail around church place on Saturday 10th June and Sunday 11th June. The children worked exceptionally hard and produced some beautiful work to be very proud of! We are currently creating some posters to advertise this event so they will be coming home to you soon!
