Year 1 pupils entered one of the classrooms to discover a Goldilocks and the Three Bears themed ‘crime scene’.

Someone had stolen the porridge and the curious youngsters were tasked with searching for clues to try and determine who may have committed the ‘crime’.

Local PCSO Kat Deronal visited to support the children with their investigation, giving tips on what sort of clues to look out for, such as fingerprints and footprints.

After completing a thorough search, the children headed outside to see the police car that PCSO Deronal had arrived in and were able to hear the siren and see the blue lights flashing. Pupils and staff will now be making ‘wanted posters’ and liaising with PCSO Deronal in a bid to track down the porridge thief.
