The School: Isle of Ely Primary School

Isle of Ely are in their first year of working with Enabling Enterprise, and have already got off to a flying start with their lesson time projects. Located in Cambridgeshire, Isle of Ely have been working closely with another of our Enabling Enterprise schools, Chesterton. They have lots of exciting plans on how they can work together on their projects.

The Challenge: Crime Scene Challenge

Both EYFS and Year 1 were excited to begin their investigations. The day began with an assembly where the news was brought to the children – all the chocolate in school had been stolen by the ‘Sugar Snatcher’! They had to use their enterprise skills Working in a Team and Sharing Ideas to look at all the evidence and rank each of the four suspects from most likely to least likely to be the culprit. The children were able to gather evidence at a Crime Scene tour, by analysing CCTV and fingerprints to narrow it down.

The Results:

After looking at all the clues, teams shared their ideas with each other to decide who they thought the Sugar Snatcher was. Once they had settled on their most likely culprit, it was time to present their ideas back to the Case Officer. The students at Isle of Ely were fantastic at tying the different pieces of evidence together to reach a decision, and impressed their teachers with how well they used the enterprise skills. Just as they were reflecting on their achievements of the day, the students learnt there had been a shock confession!

What they said:

  • “The kids have really enjoyed today, I am impressed at how they have used their imaginations.” – Teacher, Isle of Ely
  • “I liked working with my team. We all helped each other to find the Sugar Snatcher.” – Student, Isle of Ely

Well done to everyone who was involved.
