Detective for a day

Year 6 'Detectives for the day!'

On Friday 22nd  March 2019, Y6 were fortunate to be 'detectives for a day' when working with the police. It was a great opportunity to develop citizenship, problem solving, team work, writing for a purpose and communication skills.


The session involved children taking on the role of police constables in order to learn about the processes that take place when investigating and solving a crime.

Children were given the opportunity to look at and try the various pieces of equipment that are used by police officers.

Children were also given the chance to fingerprint themselves and become familiar with the set up of a crime scene.

Children were also shown a pair of handcuffs!
