The School: St Robert Southwell

St Robert Southwell are in their first year of working with Enabling Enterprise. Located in Kingsbury, they had an exciting time doing their first challenge day which was A Day in Politics which saw the students developing their teamwork and listening skills.

The Challenge: A day in Politics Challenge

Problem Solving and Listening Carefully were the order of the day for the pupils as they took on the role of politicians and formed their own political parties. Aiming High in their mixed teams, they came up with a manifesto that would improve the local community before Sharing Ideas in order to win votes from their peers.

The Results:

Throughout the day, teams impressed teachers and EE staff alike with their Sharing Ideas. The day culminated in a round of very professional presentations by all the political parties. All the students delivered confident well thought through presentations to convince their teachers and peers to vote for them. Students did well in mastering the components and techniques required to create a political party and in turn they gained greater understanding about the British political system.

What they said:

  • “The Day in Politics was brilliant, the resources were really clear and easy to follow and all the students really enjoyed working in teams to make their parties.” – Teacher, Year 3
  • ” I enjoyed designing the rosette for our political party as this represented the issues that our party were promoting.” – Student, Year 6

Well done to everyone who was involved.
