In year 2 we have been studying the book, The Great Paper Caper, in which a bear is suspected of chopping down trees in a forest. The animals launch an investigation and seal off the crime scene, take paw prints and interview witnesses. The bear eventually admits that he has been using the wood to make paper which he turns into paper aeroplanes. He desperately wants to win the annual paper aeroplane competition! He is arrested and taken to court where he is sentenced to plant more trees. Today, we had a visit from a real police detective who talked to us about forensics, collecting clues, identity parades and witnesses. Polly Ann even got to dress up in a forensic suit and collect DNA from the detective’s tea cup. It was great fun and the children asked very interesting questions.
