This afternoon the students continued work on the alibi ‘murder mystery’ activity. In teams of three and four the students explored the city, visiting the landmarks that they had researched the previous evening and gathering ‘evidence’ that they had been there (bus tickets, photographs, leaflets etc.).
On returning to the school the activity resumed with a pretend court case with the staff as judges. Each student was asked to present the evidence they had gathered whilst visiting the city whilst answering some serious (and many not so serious) questions from the judges. To conclude the students formed a jury and after some final statements of defence from the prime suspects the ‘killer’ was unmasked! The students enthusiastically threw themselves into the drama and enjoyment was had by all.
