There's A Tortoise In Our School!

Today, Year Three became master detectives. Over night a large creature had been spotted on the playground. What was it?


Braving the cold weather, we put our coats on and headed out to investigate. Instantly we saw a pile of sawdust... followed by another... and then another! It was like a trail! 


As we explored further we noticed a large nest hidden in the corner of the playground. On closer inspection we noticed four round eggs. 














When we came back into the classroom we had a discussion about what it could be. We made mindmaps on whiteboards, considering each clue we had spotted! 

















Eventually, we recieved a phone call. We found out that it was a Giant Tortoise!

We will now be looking at Giant Tortoises in our Literacy unit focusing on report writing.
