The School: Warren Farm Primary School

Warren Farm Primary School, in Kingstanding, Birmingham, are in their first year of working with Enabling Enterprise. Prior to this day, only a small group of Year 6 students had participated in the programme through a trip to East End Foods, so it was fantastic to involve almost the entire school, from Year 1 to Year 6, in a Challenge Day and develop enterprise skills across the range of students.

The Challenge: Crime Scene Investigation

In the usual morning assembly, the unsuspecting students were informed that the school’s chocolate supply had been stolen. They were invited to become detectives for a day, and assist the police in assessing which of the four suspects was guilty. Working in a Team, they examined different pieces of evidence, Sharing Ideas in order to identify the culprit.

The Results:

All of the students approached the task with impressive enthusiasm, Aiming High in their determination to identify the guilty suspect. Fantastic Problem Solving skills were on display, as teams carefully considered the evidence and its implications. At the end of the day, each team shared their findings and final decision to their classmates, with some teams putting together mature, persuasive presentations that were a pleasure to watch.

What they said:

  • “At first I was unsure of how my class would work in teams. Normally they would argue but they’ve worked amazingly together to solve the crime.” – Teacher, Year 3
  • “Today I have improved my teamwork skills. I know this because I am now more confident in helping my team.” – Student
  • “I have really enjoyed the day! Some students have recognized that they take over in group situations and are now making an effort to let others get involved in the group.” – Teacher

Well done to everyone who was involved.
