What a Mystery!

What  a mystery ! Why were the Year 1 classrooms all upside down? Who or what could have done it? Children began to think about it and  came up with some good suggestions: “It could be a giant”, “It must be some bad men” or “Could it be a dinosaur?” When they helped to tidy up the classroom, the children came across some very interesting clues and in the end decided it must have been a Viking Attack.
