First published in Cornwall

There were plenty of inky fingers at Constantine School as the pupils became amateur sleuths for a day of forensic fun.

As part of National Science Fortnight, children at the school were visited by the police who explained to them about how they catch criminals as well as what they do when they’ve been caught, and then they had a go at solving a crime themselves.

The children took their own fingerprints, and looked at forensic evidence to help them discover who had stolen a quantity of gold.

Teacher Cags Gilbert said: “When the children came in they knew it was a science day but they didn’t know what to expect.

We had two members of the police come to brief the children on the crime and told them how they solve crimes and when people are found out, what evidence they use.”

As part of the science day, the school was also visited by a group from Penryn College who brought in a snake, and fed it live in front of assembly while the feeding was shown on a big screen.
