Today in Year 4, we have been working incredibly hard to solve the still unsolved robbery of the Kings Crown. We started the day off in Guided Reading by looking at newspaper reports from The Watercliffe Times about the shocking theft on Friday.
The children used their rocket retrieving skills and quickly picked out all the key information. We then moved onto a very important word wolfing task which involved decoding “newspaper” words like atrocious, testimony and alibi.
Then, this afternoon the children wrote Letters to our police hero Officer Rich, describing their days on Friday and what they think about the crime.
This allowed the children to really focus their suspicions and link them carefully with the evidence at hand.
