To celebrate STEM week, staff at Much Woolton Primary School decided to set up a crime scene investigation which would lead to the children solving problems linking to forensic science, mathematics and in turn would really enthuse the children with their creative writing.
Sergeant Mike Brumskill and Constable Alan Landrum worked together to give the children an insight into police investigation work and the resources they use to help them. Year 2 teacher Stephanie Molloy, said: “The pupils became crime scene investigators, using police horses, cars and motorbikes to help them. They also had the amazing opportunity of taking finger prints, using police walkie talkies and trying on police and forensic uniforms.
“All of these resources and the support from Merseyside Police have been invaluable in providing a once in a lifetime learning opportunity for the children. Seeing the excitement on the children’s faces and hearing their imaginations run away with them has been priceless”.
