UFO Lands in the playground!
This incident provided the ‘hook’ into our writing for the next few weeks. The children were amazed to find an unidentified flying object in the playground when they arrived at school.
The object was a piece of volcanic rock surrounded by BBQ coals mixed with green jelly slush. There was a buzz around the school for the whole day! Children didn’t know quite whether to believe it or not. So pleased with the enthusiasm from the year 6 children and the writing they produced when they completed a police incident report was fantastic.
We will now be introducing various science fiction text over the next few weeks; hopefully they’ll forgive me for the staged UFO landing!
