We even got to taste Chinese food. Yum Yum!

Did you hear about Humpty Dumpty?

Outside the classroom today was a crime scene. Unfortunately someone had pushed Humpty Dumpty off the wall and he had to be taken to hospital.

 

Around the crime scene we found four pieces of evidence; a pair of brown footprints, a heart shaped fingerprint, a pack of sweets and some gingerbread. We made a note of these clues and then took a close look at the four suspects to determine "Who pushed Humpty Dumpty!?"

 

We decided that it was The Gingerbread Man!

 

We looked around for him all day but we think he ran away. To make sure people knew we were looking for him we made posters and wanted signs with his picture on telling people what he had done to Humpty. If you see him, let us know!

 

To cheer Humpty up we drew him pictures and made cards for him. We put them in a big envelope to send to him. Miss Swansborough rang the hospital tonight to check on Humpty. The nurse said he has a broken leg and a bump on his head so he will need to stay in bed until he feels better.
