On Tuesday 3rd December staff from crime investigation backgrounds including CSIs, detectives, and forensic scientists visited Year 5 at Well Lane.
Following an introduction to forensics Yr5 we kitted out in crime scene suits and takn to a mock crime scene.
At the scene the children were invited to identify evidence. The CSIs gather the evidence and discuss how it may be helpful in the investigation before taking it back to the classroom where we conducted our analysis. This included the following:
- Fingerprints - developing and lifting using different methods for different surfaces, (porous and non-porous), rolling and identification. We were able to lift and roll our own fingerprints.
- Footwear marks - casting and lifting electronically. We each cast a tyre track which we were able to keep.
- Hair and Fibres – we looked at the morphology of hair using a digital microscope
Over the course of the afternoon we conducted the analysis and we able to eliminate suspects until we are finally left with one person who was the culprit (it was NOT Mrs Young!).
At the end of a very tiring but rewarding workshop we were able to keep our crime suits, fingerprint lifts and forms and tyre tracks to take home.

Listen to the audio footage of the then British prime minister, Neville Chamberlain, announcing to Britain that they were at war with Germany on 3rd September, 1939.
How do you think you would have felt to hear the announcement?
Here a few clips of children re-enacting the moment families heard the news that war had been declared by Neville Chamberlain.
