Q6 Take Part in Forensic Science Lesson
Following on from the Harry Potter theme in literacy at the junior school, our year 6 students took part in a forensic science lesson yesterday. The students were investigating who sent Hermione Granger a threatening note. Students were given examples of evidence which then had to be compared to samples collected, these included hair samples, finger prints, boot printing, hand writing comparisons and carrying out chromatograms on each suspect’s ink pen. The session was drawn to a close with students deciding if and how each suspect was involved. There was much discussion in which the students were able to argue and justify their conclusions, which are very important skills in science. All in all, a good afternoon, and enjoyed by all.
