Reading Investigation Day

On Monday, we held a reading investigation day aimed at engaging children in reading for purpose. 


In Key Stage 2, we received a report of a missing McCaw and were handed all of the evidence! 

Children were put into teams and were required to scrutinise facts and identify red herrings as they read through clues, witness statements, interrogations and crime scene reports.

Using skills of comprehension, the children then had to make links between evidence to find the culprit. 

Most children identified the correct criminal, however, the team with the best presented evidence won the prize!
