Unidentified object landed!

Yesterday an unidentified object landed in the school field!  The children in Year 2 and 3 became Newspaper reporters!   Signs were put up for the children to follow a meteor trail.   The children noticed there was an eyewitness ‘Hoppy’.  They interviewed Hoppy!  At lunchtime, a tiny astronaut appeared dazed, and a book called ‘How to spot an alien’.     The children wrote a newspaper report recounting the incident and the interview with Hoppy.  This was a ‘hook’ and introduction to newspaper writing.  The children had learned in History the last term who was an eyewitness, so this prior learning was linked.
