The School: Malmesbury Primary School

Key Stage 2 students at Malmesbury Primary School in Morden, south London have been working with Enabling Enterprise since last year. This Challenge Day was a great opportunity to think about the Enterprise Skills before their trips and enterprise week later in the year.

The Challenge: Crime Scene Challenge

It was due to be a quiet day at Malmesbury, until it was discovered all of the chocolate in the school had been stolen! Working in teams, students were set the challenge of analysing lots of different pieces of evidence to decide who could have committed this crime. They had to listen carefully to make sure they had all the facts before making their final decision and presenting it back.

The Results:

Students worked exceptionally hard in teams all day to solve the crime. Enabling Enterprise staff and the teachers at Malmesbury were particularly impressed with their problem solving: students considered lots of evidence and the different ways it could be interpreted before they came to their verdict. They also had a mature approach to resolving disagreements in their teams, by independently talking through any problems they faced and coming to agreements with each other.

What they said:

  • “It was lovely today to see everyone having an equal turn, it isn’t something I’d usually see” – Teacher, Malmesbury Primary School
  • “We worked really well in a team and we sorted it out when we had problems so we could carry on having lots of fun.” – Student, Malmesbury Primary School

Well done to everyone who was involved.
