The School: Tenterfields

Tenterfields have made great gains through their Enabling Enterprise lesson time projects this year. Year 3 organised a fundraising campaign for the British Heart Foundation, Year 4 redesigned the school library to make it more appealing and Year 5 ran a school newspaper. All of the different year groups focused on improving their enterprise skills throughout their projects.

The Challenge: A Day in Politics

With a general election fast approaching this challenge day lets students explore the mechanisms of democracy and have a chance to advocate for issues that affect them. By working in teams and effectively sharing their ideas the students take on the role of political leaders and challenge for victory in a real election.

The Results:

The students really dug into the concepts of democracy, experiencing first-hand how to stand out on the campaign trail. They worked with representation from all of the different year groups in every team and pulled together to share brilliant political speeches at their end of day hustings. Every team did a great job of using their imagination to put the right spin on their ideas and used their problem solving skills to stand up and debate with the other teams on key issues such as free school meals.

What they said:

  • “We would make a great political party because we listened to each other and we would listen to you.” – Student, Tenterfields
  • “We want to make a change that will make the world a better place.” – Student, Tenterfields

Well done to everyone who was involved.
