Detectives

 

The theme for this term is Detectives. To inspire our work we looked at the story of Tuesday. You can watch it again here: 

Tuesday

Writing task

 

Write or draw the story of the flying pigs that are in the last scene of the story. You can create a cartoon strip or storyboard. 

 

Ideas:

Where did they come from? What were they doing before they started to fly? Where did they fly to? Where will they fly next? What will happen in the end?

 

Challenge: 

Can you give the reader clues to solve the mystery of who or what had made the pigs fly?
