Children put their science skills to the test by solving a “burglary” in the school hall.

As part of National Science and Engineering Week, youngsters at Shade School, Todmorden, became forensic experts, looking for fingerprints and footprints to solve the fictional break-in.

Year five pupils did a topic exploring how healthy their food is, looking at the amount of sugar that was “hidden” in everyday food and drink.

Year one children investigated waterproof materials and how to create a shelter to keep their class pet Seb the rat warm and dry.

Foundation stage children looked at gloop and how it has the qualities of both a solid and a liquid.
