On the 2nd October, Abbie Dixon (our local PCSO) and her colleague came into school.
As we are reading Stormbreaker, a book based on the life of a teenage spy, they introduced us to a live crime scene- created to give us insight of what the real detective world was like.
We uncovered each clue: bloody, stain ridden furniture; the foot and finger prints of the criminal; shards of broken glass; a chest of draws that had been dragged out, as if the person was searching for something; and the stolen computer that had mysteriously disappeared.
Eventually, we came to the conclusion that the crime was a burglary (a crime where property belonging to another is stolen).
Once we had returned to class, we completed a fingerprint activity that we could take home to show our parents! – Hannah G, Year 6
