The School:

Yorkmead Primary School is in their 3rd year working with Enabling Enterprise and Year 6 are keen to demonstrate how their skills have developed during their lesson time projects – most recently successfully completing ‘Active Minds’. Today’s challenge was a fantastic opportunity for the 10 and 11 year olds to put their Enterprise Skills to the test in a different context – this time as police detectives!

The Challenge: Crime Scene Challenge

Over the course of the day, the students worked in teams as police detectives 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 prime suspect. Continuing to practise their Working in a Team skills, it was then time to present their case to the case officer, which they did with increasing confidence and style.

What they said:

  • “Today has been fun. I liked working with my team – we are better at it now. We solved problems together and helped D.I Brannan! It was an interesting case.” – Year 6 Student, Yorkmead PrimarySchool
  • “It’s been a lovely day. They have been focussed and I can really see an improvement in their ability to work together. They can do it!” – Year 6 Teacher, Yorkmead Primary School
  • “I’ve surprised myself! My favourite part of the day was presenting to the year group. I feel more confident sharing ideas.” – Year 6 Student, Yorkmead Primary School
  • “I got points for Leading. I made sure all of my team were included and were listened to when they shared their ideas.” – Year 6 Student, Yorkmead Primary School

Thanks to everyone for such a great Challenge Day!
