    Thank you so much for sharing this super report!
  • Submission by St Matthias School

    St Matthias’ police report by Detective Gordon

    We really enjoyed The First Case! After reading the book, we thought about all of the things that Detective Gordon and Buffy did to solve the crime. We split into small groups and each planned and wrote a bit of the police report. We hope you like it!

    Well done on your super report! You make top investigators! Kla-dunk!
  • Submission by Northumberland Heath Primary School

    Northumberland Heath Primary School First Case report

    We worked so hard revisiting the book and picking out the key events and vocabulary that we could use in our police report. We also looked at some police reports online and identified the features of a police report to use in ours. We made it huge so that everybody got a chance to do something on it and decorated it around the edge, because we thought that’s what Buffy and Detective Gordon would have done! We hope you like it.

    Thank you for your lovely comments!
  • Visualisation

    Our Yr 2 RG found the visualisation activity really interesting and so did I! They loved seeing each other’s pictures and seeing how different they all were. I particularly liked the fact that one of our RG focused on the fact that the squirrel found the police station strange and drew a very strange police station!

    Visualisation is such a powerful skill. It's so interesting to see how differently we picture things isn't it?

    How lovely! Visualisation helps us to see things through other's eyes, as well as helping with our own understanding.

    A New Coat For Mrs Noah

    We made Mrs Noah a patchwork coat using patterns that made us think of her character. The pockets holding some of our work are in the style of hands because it reminded us how caring Mrs Noah was in saving all the ‘troublesome creatures’.

    Quite beautiful. I loved the contents of the pockets too, what genuine responses!

    Mrs Noah’s hooded jacket of many colours

    It’s clearly evident how much fun our Year 2 RG group have had creating a new jacket for Mrs. Noah! I was absolutely blown away by their use of pattern and colour inspired by the illustrations in the book. They collaborated amazingly well together and it was a real team effort. They filled her pockets with wanted posters, weather forecasts and pictures of their troublesome creatures. I am so proud of them all.

    Beautiful work! The weather forecast would certainly be very useful!
  • Submission by St Matthias School

    St Matthias’ Mrs Noah’s fabulous coat!

    We looked at the patterns in the book and used ideas to design Mrs Noah's coat. Then we thought about what she might have in her pockets and drew troublesome creatures, boats, lists and maps. We hope you like it! By St Matthias Year 2 group.

    I can really see the influence of James Mayhew in your colour choices here! What a wonderful coat!

    Hello there Altmore! Lovely to meet you!
  • Inspiring patterns

    Yr 2 RG were so inspired by the patterns and colours used in ‘Mrs Noah’s Pockets’. They have done an amazing job of recreating them in their own art work and cannot wait to get started on Mrs Noah’s new outfit for their mini challenge.

    Ooh yes, we can't wait to see your design!
  • Troublesome Creatures?

    Our year 2 RG used some great descriptions to try and convince Mr Noah to save their chosen ‘troublesome creature’. However, we all agreed that the minotaur was just a little too scary for us!

    Fantastic descriptions! Yes that is a rather scary minotaur!

    He does look very troublesome!
