This week our young scientists have dusted for fingerprints, observed bite marks and checked out suspicious shoe prints at ‘crime scenes’ throughout the school.
The investigations were part of a range of activities for National Science Week. We decided to focus on the ‘working scientifically’ strand and make the investigations as cross curricular as possible. Other highlights across the week included a visit from Mr Dawson- a real crime scene investigator-he talked to the children about how science was used to prove or disprove things and then they all took part in mini investigation.
