Topic

We will start each topic with a Big Question and a WOW moment to capture the children’s interests.

 

Our Big Question during the Autumn Term is

Who Did It?

 

If you have an expert knowledge or would like to be involved in our learning in any way please let us know, we would love to have you in our classroom. 

 

Our stunning start...

The children came into school on Monday morning to find a crime scene. Someone had made a mess in the KS1 corridor and stolen Miss Unsworth's lunch box. Clues were left on the scene and the children investigated, examining clues, asking questions, identifying suspects and finally exposing the culprit.
