The School:

Ambler Primary School is in their second year working with Enabling Enterprise. Previously, students have been busy developing their Enterprise Skills by visiting employers across London but also setting up a civilisation on a far-distant planet in the ‘Operation: Moonbase’ Challenge Day. Today’s challenge was a fantastic opportunity for students from Year 1 to Year 6 to put their Enterprise Skills to the test.

The Challenge: Crime Scene Challenge

Over the course of the day, the students worked in teams as police investigators to solve the case of the ‘Sugar Snatcher.’ Following police procedures such as fingerprint analysis and evaluating evidence at the crime scene itself, the students were able to put their Problem Solving skills to the test to help them build a convincing case for who they thought was the guilty culprit. Continuing to practice their Working in a Team skills, it was then time to present their case to the case officer.

What they said:

  • “The day was fast-paced and exciting and it really helped students to understand effective teamwork.” – Teacher
  • “We really do see such an improvement over the day. This one really forced them to think about the difference between facts and assumptions which was really important for them.” – Teacher
  • “I was proud of our team for working together. We sometimes disagreed but we took a vote and used the most votes to make our decision.” – Student
  • “We used problem solving today as when we couldn’t make a decision, we had to find out more information before we got to a solution.” – Student
  • “My favourite part of the day was visiting the crime scene! It was so exciting and I’m glad I didn’t leave any fingerprints behind!” – Student

Thanks to everyone for such a great Challenge Day!
