The School: Salisbury School

Students in Salisbury School have previously completed Enabling Enterprise Lesson time projects to design their own chocolate brands and have used recycled materials to make toys. That have also participated in a day in Politics challenge day, as such the students were very knowledgeable about the enterprise skills.

The Challenge: Crime Scene Investigation Challenge

A terrible crime has been committed in school and it is down to the students to work tirelessly in their teams, assessing the evidence and Listening Carefully to audio tapes to work together to solve the mystery. Working in teams of crime-cracking detectives and Problem Solving -inspectors. Can they piece together the clues and work together to determine their key suspect?

The Results:

Whilst all students were tasked with assessing evidence during a visit to the crime scene, particular students were given the extra responsibility of becoming ‘detail detectives’ and sketch artists. It was important for the students to be Listening Carefully and making notes on the suspects so they could create a detailed log of their findings. Through the day students work in their teams to use the evidence collated at the crime scene and further information provided in their classes to develop their cases and arguments on who they thought was the sugar snatcher.

What they said:

  • “The day has been fantastic, it has encouraged students who do not normally speak in class to come out of their shells ” – Teacher, Year 5
  • ” We liked being detectives especially looking at the evidence at the crime scene” – Student, Year 3

Well done to everyone who was involved.
