This week, some mystery boxes arrived in year 5! The children were intrigued as to what was inside these boxes.
The boxes contained some clues to the next text type that the children would be writing in Literacy. The clues came in the form of some newspaper cuttings, shells from the beach, fishing nets, and boats. There was also a scroll detailing that a major incident had occurred and it was up to the children to let people know what had happened!
From these clues, the children guessed that the next type would be a newspaper report based on some of the features of the cuttings and came up with some interesting ideas on what the newspaper report would be about. It was fantastic to hear some interesting conversations take place.
The children are looking forward to the next lesson when they will learn more!
