Week 5- 'Police' and 'The Royal Wedding'
This week in Class D a very strange thing happened- Miss Jones' chocolate cake went missing! But who could have done such a terrible thing? The Class D boys and girls worked as a team to solve the mystery, however, this was not an easy task. They had to: study the different suspects, think of and read questions in an interview, compare the different finger prints at the crime scene, match them to the rightful owner and then finally write down all of their evidence and decide who did it!
After lots of deliberation the children had a vote and the most likely suspect was... Mrs Wilkinson!
Although the children were correct it turns out she had a lot of accomplices at Dingle...
To end the week we had a Royal tea party ahead of the royal wedding!

Throughout the story he tries his very best to be a good dancer and show all the other animals how good he is at the annual animal dance.
