William Stukeley Primary School became a crime scene at the end of spring term as pupils armed with magnifying glasses and CCTV photographs pieced together the clues to track down missing guide dog Fitz.

The school’s science week was turned into an exciting adventure as the youngsters examined fingerprint evidence, forensic sampling and other techniques used by scenes of crime experts to experience the thrill of being real-life detectives.

Pupils had six possible suspects to choose from amongst school staff and the mystery had a happy ending when Fitz was returned to his rightful owner, assistant headteacher Claire Underwood.

She said: “The children had a brilliant day and enjoyed working through a variety of forensic activities.”
