The School: North Mymms St Mary’s Church of England Primary School

North Mymms St Mary’s Church of England Primary School in Welham Green are in their first year of working with Enabling Enterprise to develop their students’ key skills including Listening Carefully and Working in a Team. This year they are taking part in Crime Scene Challenge Day and the Year 5 class also have the opportunity to go on a business visit into London to apply their enterprise skills further.

The Challenge: Crime Scene Challenge

At the start of the day the students were presented with four potential suspects that could have been “the sugar snatcher” who had stolen all the chocolate from school. Throughout the day the students worked in police teams and had to use their Problem Solving to collect evidence, such as finger prints, CCTV recordings and suspect statements, and try and work out which suspect was guilty.

The Results:

Having collected all the evidence in the morning, the police teams then had to analyse the clues they had found and decide as a team who they thought was the guilty suspect. At the end of the day it was brilliant to see such great Sharing Ideas and Listening Carefully in the police teams when they were preparing, practising and then performing their final presentations to the class.

What they said:

  • “They’re all really buzzing about the day and even spent break-time collecting clues in the playground to try and work out who it was!” – Head Teacher
  • “We have done really good teamwork because we all listened to each other.” – Student, Year 1

Well done to everyone who was involved.
