Witham: Budding detectives solve summer holiday mystery
1:11pm Monday 2nd September 2013 in News
Budding detectives scoured a school for clues to unravel a summer holiday mystery.
Youngsters searched New Rickstones Academy in Conrad Road, Witham, on Friday as part of the Detective Xperience.
The children, aged between five and 11-years-old, investigated a mock crime scene and put together a list of suspects while investigating a tale of missing diamonds, which were believed to have been hidden in the school.
Mark Shean, from Sports Xtra, said: “They took finger prints from the crime scene as well as using casting powder to pick up evidence from footprints left by the suspect.
“It all gives them a better understanding of the processes involved in detective work, while having good fun at the same time.”
It was the latest in a series of school holiday events, which included dance and sports, and encouraged youngsters to try new hobbies.
