Recently, a most terrible catastrophe struck Paris class. Their marble jar had been stolen! This meant that they couldn’t earn their class treat any more. Paris class were devastated. In light of this, we were inspired to do some detective work of our own to try and find the culprit. As a class, we talked to various members of staff and pupils to try and find our missing marbles. Unfortunately, we had no luck and so we wrote a class newspaper article informing the rest of the school what had happened and appealing for witnesses.

The next day, we returned from hymn practise to find our marble jar had been returned and the thief had recorded a video of their confession and apology. Paris class were shocked to find out who the culprit was and were then inspired to write a further newspaper report independently revealing the criminal to the school. Read our amazing articles to find out the identity of the criminal…
