The School:

Chingford Junior School has been working with Enabling Enterprise for several years. Previously, students have been busy developing their Enterprise Skills by taking part in lesson-time projects and Challenge Days every year. Today’s challenge was a fantastic opportunity for students from Years 4 and 5 to put their Essential Skills to the test.

The Challenge: A Day in Politics

Over the course of the day, the Chingford Junior students had the opportunity to practice their Working in a Team skill by setting up their very own political parties. They got straight into the world of politics, learning about democracy and carrying out debates before setting up their own political parties. The Year 4 and 5 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:

  • ”Today has been a great confidence builder. Those children who wouldn’t normally get the chance to lead a team have become leaders today and it has really opened their eyes to the world around them.” – Teacher
  • “Everyone, we will make sure this country becomes a better place. We believe we can do the impossible!” – Year 4 Student
  • “A team leader is someone who listens and makes sure everyone is included.” – Year 5 Student

Thanks to everyone for such a great Challenge Day!
