The School: Our Lady’s Catholic Primary School

Our Lady’s Catholic Primary School in Birmingham is in their 4th year working with Enabling Enterprise. Year 6 students have been busy learning about British Democracy and developing their Enterprise Skills in lesson time projects and out on Enabling Enterprise work place visits. Today’s challenge was a fantastic opportunity for students to use their knowledge of all things political and showcase their essential Enterprise Skills ahead of what has become the school’s annual Year 6 visit to the Houses of Parliament next week.

The Challenge: A Day in Politics

Over the course of the day, students had the opportunity to practise their Working in a Team skill by setting up their very own political parties. They dived head first into the world of politics, carrying out debates before setting up their own political parties. Students were Sharing Ideas about which areas of society they wanted to help and how they might allocate their budget most effectively according to their party manifesto priorities. Finally, teams held an exciting election to determine who’d lead the way in improvements for the community and country.

What they said:

  • “A well organised and structured day which stimulated the children’s imagination whilst providing them with interactive and effective learning. A thoroughly enjoyable day ” – Teacher
  • “My team have had a few problems to solve – but we have stayed positive and we are working well together.” – Student
  • “This is really good – I like it when we work in teams and have to use our skills on a challenge. It feels real!” – Student

Thanks to everyone for such a great Challenge Day and have super visit to The House of Commons.
