CSI Reading Research Project
Mrs Nichol and Mrs Eales have been working on a project to enhance motivation for reading and writing. A selection of pupils from across our school and the Junior school, as well as many other local schools, gathered together on Monday for an exciting workshop. We were joined by two crime scene investigators who set up a crime in our school and taught the children how to solve it. We took finger prints of each other, lifted fingerprints from objects in the crime scene and learnt how to lift footprints too. It was an incredibly exciting day and the children came away buzzing. The next step in the project is to explore some books about crime scenes and mysteries over the Christmas holidays. We will then be setting up a blog for the children involved to discuss the books they have read and share their thoughts. We will keep you updated on how the project is going!
