The activity day marked the last day of term before the summer holidays and saw all pupils take part in learning about finger printing, tyre prints, hair analysis and blood spatter. The children also got to experience searching for evidence, scene preservation and see what a prison cell looks like.
A team from Wiltshire Police including force centre control operators and police community support officers (PCSOs) talked to pupils about how they perform their job and use evidence to catch an offender. A skills-based group called ‘Think Forensic’ also came from Yorkshire to give expert analysis on crime scene investigation and the processes behind finding evidence.
Seend Primary School headteacher, Jackie Chalk said, “As it’s the last day of term we like to have an activity day where the children can learn from doing something hands-on, away from the classroom.
“It’s a fun and exciting way to end the school year and helps the children understand that the things we teach them do get used in the real world. It also helps them develop their observational skills, gives an insight into forensics and will help improve teamwork.”
