A Sleuth for the Truth: Year 5 Maths and Science Day

A sleuth for the truth: In their quest to find out what happened to the poisoned Headmaster, our Year 5 Prep pupils visited the Senior School to complete a series of Maths and Science experiments to discover who did it, and how!

They investigated the effect of the different drugs on the heartbeat of Daphnia in biology, studied infrared radiation from CCTV footage in physics and tested a variety of substances in chemistry before using the evidence to conclude their findings through a mathematical challenge.

Who did it? And how? You’ll have to ask our Year 5 scientists for the answer!
