This Years 5-7 Reader’s Theatre brainteaser mystery script will give English and drama pupils practice in reading aloud, comprehension and writing, while having lots of fun. The Mystery of the Stolen Laptop script will entertain your students and require them to perform inference tasks to solve clues. The script is intended for 8 readers but the number of readers can be contracted or expanded depending on how many groups you wish to have. This funny and engaging story is about the theft of a laptop at school and the detective work that two characters use to track it down. The main character parts range in age from 10-14. KS2 and early KS3 students will have a hoot!
Matt fears he isn’t as speedy at working things out as his clever friend Sophie is, but he manages to wow her in this story- and discover where his stolen laptop is.

To track down the missing laptop students will unscramble anagrams. They will also work out clues using a numbers-to-alphabet code. After finishing, students have to discuss and write on six questions, complete a journal entry, and design a ‘Where’s Wally?’ style drawing for a fellow student. This resource will delight both entire classes and small groups of early finishers. Question sheets and answers are included.
