In the Training Room there is a body lying in a pool of blood.

The students need to grab their evidence gathering tools, don protection suits and head for the training room..

Having seen the body, the students gather the evidence which is spread around them, but of course without in any way contaminating the crime scene.

Instructions and updates are given aurally as well as appearing on in-game plasma TVs. As the investigation progresses students are taken around the Store Room, the Locker Room, the Scene of the Crime, and the Crime Lab itself, finally ending up at the Crown Prosecution Service.

The students use the equipment in the Crime Lab to examine fingerprints, fibres and blood samples taken from the crime scene.

A computer with a scanner within the program can be used to identify the owners of fingerprints. A microscope allows the examination of fibres. The blood is processed using electrophoresis which is represented by a comprehensive animation of the process.

Once the evidence has been gathered and processed the student can forward the findings to the Crown Prosecution Service office where a further task involving the use of gas chromatography can be attempted by students who have the completed the initial processes successfully.

?this is’, not a question!

In order to help prepare children for the 2013 English Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling Test, we have devised a photocopiable revision book which contains a variety of different activities and approaches to help pupils gain a thorough understanding of the various aspects of the English language covered.

The photocopiable pages revisit everything from punctuation to grammar that the pupils have learned through their time at primary school and can be used with whole classes, small groups and individuals.

There are sections on personal and impersonal forms, definite and indefinite articles, verb forms, and apostrophes, to name a few.

What’s more, practice test papers will be available from February 2013 to compliment this book.

Free sample pages and a full list of the 50+ topics incorporated into the volume are available on our website at
