The School: Holy Family Catholic Primary

Year 3, 4 and 5 students at Holy Family Catholic Primary in Small Heath are working with Enabling Enterprise for their second year. Having already started their Lesson-Time Projects, the Challenge Day was an exciting opportunity for students to put their enterprise skills into action.

The Challenge: A Day in Politics

The Enabling Enterprise Day in Politics challenge was the perfect chance for the Holy Family students from Years 3 to 5 to learn more about the life of a politician and how to run a political party. Each class got started by testing their knowledge with a quiz and were introduced to some rather challenging political vocabulary. Teams had to listen carefully to each other, share ideas and make big decisions! Manifestos were then written, before each political party made eye-catching party stash and competed in their very own hustings to elect class winners.

The Results:

The students were clearly engaged and enjoyed using their teamwork skills. Teams impressed with the way in which problems were overcome and agreements made – there were certainly some mature leaders. Secret class ballots were held to decide the final winners and those were presented in the assembly at the end of the day.

What they said:

  • “I noticed the quieter children getting stuck in and building in confidence. Some who would usually find teamwork difficult did so well!” – Teacher, Year 3
  • “I’ve enjoyed working as a team. I’ve learned that sometimes you need to change your plans to make things work.” – Student, Year 4

Well done to everyone who was involved.
