    (pupils involved have already had a Mask handling session where they found
    out information about the different masks)

Introduction: 5 minutes

Setting up: 10 minutes

   - non-fiction
   - describes the way things are
   - factual
   - sensational
   - interesting
   - informative
   - read by someone who doesn’t know anything about the subject
 Explain to class that we will be role-playing in pairs. One person will be the museum
   security officer/curator and one person will be the journalist. (have sticky badges,
   with job titles on)
 As the journalist, what sort of questions do you need to ask? Whole class input,
   teacher to write questions on board. As the museum person, what sort of robbery
   could you imagine happening? What details do you need to include?
 Decide on your pairs and your mask. Then spend 5 minutes on your own thinking
   about what questions you want to ask/what story you have to tell.

Role-play: 15 minutes
