Crime at Broadford Primary!

Pupils in Year 3, 4, 5 and 6 became Crime Scene Investigators for the day to solve some wrongdoing that had taken place at Broadford Primary School!

Dave, an expert in the field of CSI, brought the exciting world of Forensic Science into our classrooms.  He has worked with the police for over thirty years and was able to help with some of the scientific knowledge and skills.

We analysed and dusted for fingerprints, took footprint moulds, tested inks and handwriting using chromatography and compared trace elements to suspect clothing.

'I didn't realise people used science in their jobs!  I understand why it is important to work hard in Science now.' Bradley Joy, Ash class.
