Crime Scene Investigation at St Pauls CE Infant School
Event date:  
St Pauls CE Infant School
Based in the village of Tongham in Surrey, St Paul’s CE Infant have been working with Enabling Enterprise since 2017. The school has strong ties with its local community and offers children opportunities to extend their learning both in and outside of the classroom. Through their work with Enabling Enterprise, students from across the school put their skills to the test in exciting whole-school Challenge Days, whilst Lesson-Time Projects in the classroom enable these skills to be stretched further in a range of collaborative tasks.
Crime Scene Investigation
Over the course of the day, students worked in teams as police investigators to solve the case of the Sugar Snatcher. Having been presented with the suspects, time was of the essence to examine the evidence. Following police procedures such as fingerprint analysis and evaluating evidence at the crime scene itself, the aspiring detectives put their Problem Solving skills to the test to help them build a convincing case for who they thought the culprit was. Continuing to practise their Teamwork skills, some teams put together the most persuasive evidence boards to put forward their case for the culprit. The enterprising police recruits then shone with their Presenting skills as it was time to report their findings to the Case Officer.

It's been brilliant. I've heard so many great ideas and seen so much fantastic teamwork, it's lovely to see. These skills are so important and it's a great way to practise using them!

This is so much fun! It's hard and I keep changing my mind but I'm really enjoying it.
Student, St Paul's
They are so engaged. There is so much chat about suspects, evidence and their theories. Even those who are usually quieter have really contributed and shared their ideas confidently.
