We are Forensic Detectives…

During the first week, to open our new topic, ‘MI5: Mission Survive’, the Chipmunks and the Geckos became Forensic Detectives.

We had a go at recreating techniques, used by detectives, to recover fingerprints left on items, such as drinking glasses.

We also discussed how DNA if used to identify people, including criminals! Then we investigated the types of patterns that we all had in our own fingerprints. Some of us noticed loops, arches or whirls.

We played ‘Fingerprint Detectives’ to test how well we could recognise each other’s finger prints. Great fun was had by all!
