We are continuing work on – The London Eye Mystery – we are focusing on chapter 10 and 11 this week, where the police arrive to investigate the missing child.  But the chapters 7,8,9 are attached too so that you can keep up with the book.

Overview:

Day 1: SPAG lesson – Please look through the revision powerpoint on pronouns, and then complete the pronouns task. There are three tasks which progressively become more challenging. Please Pick 2 tasks. Answers are on the honesty card.

Day 2:  Introduction to police reports.  Read both reports and think about how they are similar or different.  Then look at the features that are included and find evidence of them in both texts. Then explain how the 2 reports are similar and different.

Day 3: Today, you have been given a transcript of a police report – this is the real evidence spoken by the witnesses.  Read the example and then create your own TRANSCRIPT using the evidence from Chapter 11.

Day 4: Today you are to write the police report from the transcript you made yesterday.  Convert the transcript into the Police’s version on events. Remember to look at the report example from Lesson 2.
