The School: Foresters Primary School

Foresters Primary School, based in Sutton, have been working with Enabling Enterprise for four years. The school has previously completed the Crime Scene Challenge and Operation Moonbase challenge days. Year 5 students have also completed the Design Company and Number Crunching lesson time projects.

The Challenge: A Day in Politics

Students from Years 3 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 wanted 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:

The students from Foresters really rose to the challenge and there was some particularly strong Leading across the year groups. Leaders really encouraged their whole party to be involved and helped them Stay Positive, despite setbacks! At the end of the day, students presented their own political speeches in an exciting hustings, and the work they had put into improving their presentation skills during the day was evident in their confident and passionate delivery. Overall, every class impressed their teacher with the ability to effectively communicate ideas they felt passionate about. Many pupils showed they could Aim High to be the most successful party in their class and it was clear their knowledge of politics deepened over the day.
