The School: Old Moat Primary School

Finishing off their first year with Enabling Enterprise and hot on the heels of their most recent Employer Trip to RSA, the children of Old Moat were eager to dive in to a fun packed, fast actioned Challenge Day. Welcoming guests from both Rolls Crescent Primary and Chorlton Park Primary school, all members of the newly formed CLIC Trust, the students and teachers alike were excited to explore the world of Crime Scene Investigation.

The Challenge: Crime Scene Investigation

The Sugar Snatcher struck again, but this time they picked the wrong school. Faced with the worrying prospect of no desserts, the students gathered together to be briefed on a most heinous crime. Sometime before school began, someone snuck into school and stole all of the chocolate from the school canteen. With the support of the EE’s Crime Scene Investigation Team and Chief Inspector Lamb, the children set off in their teams, following evidence that would lead them to decide which of the four suspects they believed to be the culprit.

The Results:

Assessing each clue, the new recruits showed their Problem Solving skills by Listening Carefully and Sharing Ideas to make tough decisions. Each team was asked to present their findings, showing which of the four possible suspects they believed to be the infamous sugar snatcher. Aiming High and Using Imagination, all the teams presented with confidence and creativity and when at last the culprit had no other choice but to step forward, the students Staying Positive skills were tested as they came to realise the truth.

The true success of the day was shown with the student’s abilities in Leading and Working in a Team as they welcomed their new partners from Rolls Crescent and Chorlton Park, into their school, classrooms and teams.

What they said:

  • “I’m really impressed with how well the kids have worked together, some of them really find teamwork difficult but have been really engaged today.” – Teacher, Year 3, Old Moat
  • “I’ve really enjoyed being here today, it’s well good and my team definitely know who it is.” – Student, Year 6, Chorlton Park
  • “My team thought it was someone else, but we had a vote so I had to stay positive.” – Student, Year 4, Old Moat

Well done to everyone who was involved.
