The School: London Fields Primary School

London Fields Primary School in Hackney are currently in their second year of working with Enabling Enterprise. Later this year, the whole school will running lesson-time projects in their ‘Enterprise Week’, so today’s Challenge Day was a great way to put their skills to the test.

The Challenge: A Day in Politics

Students from Year 1 to Year 6 explored the world of politics over the course of the day, Using their Imagination to set up a series of new political parties, along with slogans and logos, and Problem Solving in teams to decide which areas of society they most want to support. The classes also had a chance to stretch their Sharing Ideas skills in a series of tense debates, on topics the students had chosen themselves, which proved great preparation for their final speeches.

The Results:

Throughout the day, the students continued to apply themselves well to whatever challenge they were set and impressed with their thoughtful high-level discussion of some tough topics. Teams clearly enjoyed the opportunity to feel they could have a say on how they wanted their country to be fun. Finally, they finished the day with some powerful persuasive speeches in the hustings Listening Carefully to the ideas of their opponents. The students left having voted to decide who the elected party would be for their class.

What they said:

  • “It’s been really great to see the way that the children have developed their team work skills over the course of the day.” – Teacher, Year 1
  • “People should vote for us, because they can trust in us like we trusted in each other today.” – Student, Year 4

Well done to everyone who was involved.
