The School: Cranford Primary School

Students at Cranford Primary, in the London borough of Hounslow, have been taking part in enterprise challenges for the past three years. Students have developed key skills such as Problem Solving, Sharing Ideas and Staying Positive during their Lesson Time Projects. Years 3, 4 and 5 have also ventured out on trips to top businesses such as General Electric, Hounslow Highways and Societe Generale.

The Challenge: Crime Scene Challenge

Students arrived at school to discover that a shocking crime had taken place: the Sugar Snatcher had broken in and stolen all the chocolate that teachers had bought as a treat for students to reward their hard work!!

Aided by a team of detectives in forensic suits, the new police recruits searched for evidence and analysed which of the four suspects they believed was guilty. Then, they presented their cases to the police in a series of formal presentations.

The Results:

Throughout the day, students demonstrated great teamwork by Sharing Ideas about each clue and Listening Carefully to each others’ opinions. They worked together to make team decisions and gave reasons for their choices based on the evidence they’d seen.

At the end of a hectic day of detecting, recruits were shocked to discover that one of the suspects had gone to the police station to make a surprise confession! Due to confidentiality, we cannot reveal who it was…

What they said:

  • “Today has been really exciting and the kids have thoroughly enjoyed investigating the case together in their groups, especially the Crime Scene visit which I have just loved! ” – Teacher, Year 5
  • “We have been problem solving in our group because we all thought it was someone different but needed to decide on just one suspect as a team.” – Student, Year 4

Well done to everyone who was involved.
