The School:

Gilbertstone Primary School, Birmingham has worked with Enabling Enterprise for over 4 years – committed to providing their children from the early years to Year 6 with opportunities to develop their essential Enterprise Skills. During Global Entrepreneurship week, classes have been busy with lesson time projects and groups have been out on workplace visits to a global law firm as well as to a construction and engineering company.
Today’s challenge was a fantastic opportunity for children from Reception to Year 6 to put their Enterprise Skills to the test.

The Challenge: Crime Scene Challenge

Over the course of the day, the children 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, they were able to put their Problem Solving skills to the test to help them build a convincing case for who they thought was the prime suspect. Continuing to practise their Working in a Team skills, it was then time to present their case to the case officer. Presentations showed increased confidence and clearly all teams had been Sharing Ideas effectively.

What they said:

  • “It’s been so good today to see my class working so positively together. It’s especially good to see the children who don’t always feel confident to be fully involved and able to share their ideas.” – Year 5 Teacher, Gilbertstone Primary School
  • ” The whole day was so well organised and professional. The resources were excellent and it was wonderful to see the children all working together in teams guided by their teachers and the Enabling Enterprise team. A really enjoyable and impressive day. Thank you. ” – Governor, Gilbertstone Primary School
  • “We got the prime suspect! We’d listened carefully, shared ideas and made sure we didn’t jump to conclusions.” – Year 6 Student, Gilbertstone Primary School

Thanks to everyone for such a great Enterprise Challenge Day!
