CRIME SCENE! Van Gogh's missing painting...

Children were very shocked when arriving to school on Thursday to find a CRIME SCENE!

A mysterious thief wrecked our Key Stage 1 area on Wednesday night at 9.30pm and stole Van Gogh's famous painting The Starry Night which we had proudly displayed in the hub space.


The burglar left many clues... we have used the crime scene as a route into many different forms of writing. Children enjoyed writing newspaper reports, wanted posters and question lists for our suspects.


The children really enjoyed investigating the crime and used our iPads to create photographic evidence.
