Raising Attainment in KS2 Science
Working Scientifically in Primary School
Our KS2 Forensic Science Workshop supports the New National Curriculum (Science) helping to develop pupils’ awareness of scientific enquiry through Forensic Science and the applications, techniques and authentic processes used within a Crime Scene Investigation by using CSI hands-on activities. Introducing elements of the Criminal Justice System at an age when it really matters, in addition to assisting in your pupils transitional development. Additionally, a great workshop if your school is doing a Crime & Punishment topic!
So what do Teachers have to say about our workshops?
St Mary’s Catholic Primary School Broadway, Derby
We had a fantastic day when PulseCSI came to our school. Our topic was detectives and this day was part of our topic. The children were excited and enthused by the day and are still talking about it! Many of the children have been so inspired by the wonderful day that they are aspiring to be forensic detectives. Jacqui pitched the activities and information at a perfect level for our year 3 and 4’s. Thank you Jacqui and hope to see you again when our topic comes around.

Right from the word go, our children were fully and completely enthused; this fully ‘hands-on’ approach was the perfect educational ‘pick-me-up’ to the post-Christmas bleary-eyed slump. Our sincerest thanks to Jacqui for creating the most unique & gifted form of experience; bucket-loads of learning matched only by the shed-load of fun that the children (and us grown-ups) experienced within our Forensic Workshop; I’ve never seen the hour and minute hands race so quickly towards 3:20, than when 90 children and three adults were all geared up in white forensic suits, gloves and masks . . . ……. A perfect blend of learning and enjoyment. I ‘suspect’ our children will remember this fabulous workshop event for quite some time to come!

After 12 years of teaching, I can hand on heart say that the C.S.I. Forensic science workshop was the best educational experience my classes have EVER had! I can not recommend it highly enough. The buzz of learning, from start to finish was amazing! The children got knee deep in the skills of forensic science and left the school that day with a pep in their step, a deeper love and appreciation of science and to top it all off – a full SOCO outfit! And so did the teachers! We will certainly be repeat customers!

Just wanted to drop you an email to thank you for the great service that we received from your and your team on Wednesday 27th August. The students and staff had a great time becoming crime scene investigators for the day. They all left buzzing with excitement about the skills that they had learnt (the staff just as much as students). Your team where really helpful and friendly and managed to keep everyone engaged throughout the day.
