Girls Join the Crime Squad

Thursday, 06 December 2012

Year 8 pupils at Bolton School Girls’ Division took part in a Crime Squad course as part of their enrichment at school.

The day comprised of lots of interactive tasks to help students develop their higher order thinking, active learning, problem solving, collaboration and leadership skills as well as being lots of fun.

Girls worked in teams on a variety of activities, including decoding and defusing an explosive device, investigating a crime scene and examining forensic evidence, and solving a murder mystery using powers of deduction.

The Crime Squad course was run by the company ‘Wiser Words’, who specialise in master classes and enrichment days for students.
