The School: Carlton Primary

Carlton Primary school are now in their third year of working with Enabling Enterprise and have so far enjoyed trips to Freshfields, Forward3D and NatWest.

The Challenge: Crime Scene Challenge

The aim of the challenge was to try to catch the Sugar Snatcher – a criminal who has been terrorising local schools by stealing chocolate from the kitchens in the dead of night. Pupils had to work in teams to evaluate various bits of evidence discovered over the course of the day. They then had to present their findings, backing up their ideas with strong reasons as to which one of the 4 possible suspects committed the crime. The groups had to put their team work, problem solving and imagination skills to the test to help them reach a verdict to present to the police at the end of the day.

The Results:

It was great to see how all the children used their imaginations to try to build up the story of what could have happened. By visiting the crime scene and making careful observations of the evidence left behind, they were able to show fantastic reasoning skills and justify their conclusions.

What they said:

  • “Toady has been a huge success. The way the children have justified their reasons has been very impressive, excellent for their oracy skills.” – Teacher, Carlton Primary
  • “I’ve really enjoyed looking at the evidence and thinking about what could have happened, I can’t wait to find out who did it!” – Student, Carlton Primary

Well done to everyone who was involved.
