The famous painting by artist Marcel Riley was returned today! Our pupils worked scientifically to find the culprit. They used fingerprint recognition, chromatography, microscopes and measurement to eliminate the suspects one-by-one. Eventually we found that Mr Devlin had taken the painting in order to raise money for a new trophy cabinet for all our recent sporting achievements. He had been put up to it by Mr MacDonald who also wanted to show off our cups and medals. Of course, we reiterated to the children that these two over zealous teachers were not real criminal masterminds and the whole thing had been set up by Mr Bell and Mrs Dawes to improve our forensic scientific skills. A brilliant event all round with some wonderful science and great reasoning by our pupils. Well done Westerhope and please look out for the scientific learning on class or curriculum pages.
