Hospital Heist Lesson Six

This is the final lesson of the Hospital Heist project, which is designed to help students use the third person objective to write up their findings ready for the court case.

There is a suggested writing frame below for teachers to use/adapt for their classes. Please choose the best report from your school and send it to kathryn.cox@cantell.co.uk by 9th July 2021. That student will win a prize and then we will choose the best overall report to read out at a mock court case, which schools will be able to watch. The student that writes the best overall report will also win some science equipment for their school. We are happy for schools to decide what is meant by ‘best’, but please send a few lines to explain your decision so that we can take that into account when choosing the overall winner. For example you could pick a report that has been written above that student’s normal level or the one that had most effort put into it.
