The Year 5 children were invited to Cantell to take part in a truly exciting day!!
The Cantell Science Department offered our Year 5 children the chance to become forensic scientists for the day. The workshop, which was linked to Cantell’s STEM department (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) was a two hour session specifically designed for pupils in Upper Key Stage 2. Pupils spent the first hour and a half learning about the four techniques which may be used by investigators to solve a crime,
They then carried out their own investigation using the skills they had learned.
When the children came back from their day, everyone (teachers included) was buzzing with excitement.
I wonder if there are a few budding forensic scientists in Year 5!!
