Writing Week April 2019 - What a mystery!
What a week...Sherlock Holmes' priceless golden pen that had been gifted to us by a museum, locked in a glass case, had disappeared! And so began our mystery-themed writing week for this term. What a buzz! The school was bustling with mystery, confusion and excitement at having to solve this devastating crime. Classrooms were transformed into incident rooms as clues and evidence flooded in. So many clues, where to start? Our junior detectives analysed scores and scores of pieces of evidence from Twitter feeds and forensic evidence to witness statements and social media posts. Obviously the whole school needed to be finger printed in order to be eliminated from ongoing enquiries and messages were exchanged using secret ink so that our intelligence was not leaked. Reconstructions and walk-throughs took place in order to understand where and how the perpetrator had stolen the golden pen.
It was a long, challenging process of elimination, where children worked in teams and independently to create crime walls, time lines and evidence logs in order to crack the case! Luckily they did and the golden pen was returned safely…phew! The children then used their experiences of solving this crime to write their own mystery stories, working hard to develop their characters and build tension throughout their story. What an amazing week; well done to all of our amazing FCJA junior detectives!
