The School: Wormholt Park Primary School

Wormholt Park Primary, based in Hammersmith & Fulham, have been working with Enabling Enterprise to develop students’ enterprise skills both inside and outside the classroom. With Year 6 having already taken part in trips to businesses earlier this term, and every class having worked on Lesson-Time Projects, today was an excellent opportunity for the whole school to build on the eight enterprise skills they have already been developing throughout the year.

The Challenge: Crime Scene Challenge

At the start of the day, students at Wormholt Park were presented with a difficult problem to solve: a crime had taken place in their school and they needed to use all of their enterprise skills to solve it! Students from Years 1 to 5 examined the crime scene for evidence and worked in teams to uncover which of the police’s four suspects could be the elusive ‘Sugar Snatcher’. Only by effectively working together and thoroughly analysing the evidence would they be able to find the right person.

The Results:

Students across the school demonstrated their excellent Problem Solving skills throughout the day, as they examined physical evidence, listened to audio recordings, and analysed fingerprint evidence found at the crime scene. Different teams had differing suspicions about which of the suspects was guilty, but every team from Year 1 to 5 presented a persuasive and convincing presentation of their arguments to the case officer at the end of the day. It was clear they were now experts at Aiming High and Staying Positive.

What they said:

  • “This challenge was set at a really good pace and I’ve seen how their listening skills have improved. They have been very focused and I like that.” – Teacher, Year 4
  • “I like doing Enabling Enterprise because it’s fun and it gives us a chance to use our imagination.” – Student, Year 4

Well done to everyone who was involved.
