Year 4 Crime Scene Investigators!

This week year 4 became crime scene investigators as they were asked to find out who kidnapped our class mascot, Jeff the Tiger! This was a fantastic way to conclude our Crime and Punishment topic – having learned about crime and punishment through the ages, the children used modern day investigation techniques to solve the crime. We took notes and made maps at the crime scene, interviewed the key suspects, took fingerprints, recorded evidence, analysed the soil left at the scene, and analysed the suspects handwriting and ink pens against the note left by the kidnapper! After 3 days of in depth investigation, we found Mrs Law to be the culprit! Although Mrs Law threatened to go on the run, Jeff the tiger was rescued and is safely returned to year 4. Well done detectives!
