The School: Claremont Primary Academy

Years 1-6 at Claremont Primary School will be starting enterprise lesson-time projects next year and this Challenge Day was a chase for students to test their Challenge Skills on a fast-paced political adventure.

The Challenge: A Day in Politics

Students were challenged to become politicians for the day and work in teams to set up their own political parties. After tackling a quiz and debate, the new political parties created their own party manifestos and promotional campaigns. At the end of the day, each party shared their ideas in an exciting hustings to try and persuade potential voters that they were politicians to trust.

The Results:

Over the course of the day, students developed their team work skills. The importance of listening carefully was highlighted so that the best ideas could be included in their party manifestos. Students had to stay positive when the time was running out and the final vote was being counted.

What they said:

  • “All my students have been engaged in all the activities and it’s been great to see students who are new to the school standing up and speaking with confidence.” – Teacher, Claremont Primary
  • “We’ve had a really enjoyable day and students made good progress with in their listening and teamwork skills. Teacher, Claremont Primary
