The School:

Scott Wilkie Primary School is in their second year working with Enabling Enterprise. Previously, students have been busy developing their Enterprise Skills by visiting the University of East London and exploring the subjects, societies and skills you need to succeed at university. Today’s challenge was a fantastic opportunity for students from Year 3 and 4 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 practice 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. One team came up with the idea of making robots to support older people in care homes, and another decided they would make the country better by making all public transport electric. Finally, teams held an exciting election to determine who’d created the most persuasive political party!

What they said:

  • “It is really interesting listening to their conversations about which areas of society to help. They managed to come up with interesting ideas and suggestions.” – Teacher
  • “I was really impressed with their debate. They argued with passion and came up with great arguments.” – Teacher
  • “I think I am a great leader, so I could definitely be Prime Minister someday.” – Student
  • “We have been the best political party today because we came up with ideas that would help everyone and make the country better.” – Student

Thanks to everyone for such a great Challenge Day!
