Year 5 English Quest Lesson:

To hook the children into our new model text in English, they were sent on a quest to find hidden treasure. They were given the first clue and then had to solve the riddle to find the location of all other subsequent clues. In total there were eight riddles to solve before the children could finally opening a tiny door behind which the 'precious stone' was discovered.

Year 5 have been looking at two voice poems with contrasting characters as part of their new unit on dialogue.
After looking at the model (which was a two-voice poem between Batman & the Joker) and exploring what conversation may have been had between two characters in a photo, 5H wrote their own as a whole class.
