The Elf Detective Agency has been called to investigate the case of the missing reindeer. Have they wandered off, or is it foul play? Pick the detective, follow the clues and craft a tale to tell us what happened.

Class experience

US Grade 3 - 5
Students will:
Explore features of a detective story
Begin to understand how to show personality and behaviour traits in how they write a character rather than ‘list’ them
Explore basic planning of a story
Think about seasonal descriptions to set their tale aside from a story that could take place at any time (weather, colours, clothing, food, senses, etc)
Writing is my passion and as well as majoring in English at university, along with Theatre Arts, I've almost 20 years of experience in teaching English in primary schools. Over those years, I have worked regularly with groups of children specifically on English writing skills and teaching creative writing online.
I’ve also had a love of and fascination with all things Christmas from an early age and have studied and discovered many traditions, facts and tales over the years.
