In Literacy, Year 5 are currently learning how to write a crime story that includes a flashback. To help improve our creativity two members of the local police force stopped by to show us their uniform and their patrol car. After sounding off the sirens, we were allowed to try on the uniform and sit inside the front seats of the car. It was great to experience first hand what we are about to write about in class.
Not only did we enjoy a visit from the police, we also heard a lot about Mr Garbutt’s exciting career in the police force. The children asked some fascinating and detailed questions which will help generate our ideas in Literacy. Thank you to the local police force and for Mr Garbutt for kicking off this Literacy unit in style.
