Charlton – Crime Scene day

The children had great fun today and learned a great deal at the same time as they took on the role of forensic scientists. They arrived in school to find that a crime scene had been set up – a shield from the trophy cabinet had been stolen.They had to collect evidence including fibre and hair samples, a footprint’s measurements, soil samples and fingerprints. .
