The School:

Ss John and Monica Catholic Primary School is in their third year working with Enabling Enterprise. Previously, students have been busy developing their Enterprise Skills by solving the case of the Sugar Snatcher on their Challenge Day last year, and through their Lesson Time Projects, including Postal Service and Brilliant Books. Today’s challenge was a fantastic opportunity for all children to put their Enterprise Skills to the test.

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, learning about democracy and 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 spend their money to support them. Finally, teams held an exciting election to determine who’d created the most persuasive political party!

What they said:

  • “They are really enjoying it. The videos on the presentation are great for keeping them engaged.” – Teacher
  • “I have noticed a real improvement in their problem-solving skills over the day. At the start they were asking me for help every time they got stuck, but now are working it out in their group.” – Teacher
  • “I’ve been using my listening carefully and sharing ideas skills, working with my team to think about our promises.” – Student
  • “I really enjoyed making the rosettes for our political party and am proud of what I have done today.” – Student

Thanks to everyone for such a great Challenge Day!
