The School:

Broken Cross Primary Academy School is in their first year working with Enabling Enterprise. This was their first taster of the work we do and it was great to see Reception through to Year 6 excited to get started! Today’s challenge was a fantastic opportunity for all the students (and the school dog, Bob) to but their Enterprise Skills to the test. They were further aided by the presence of some parents and PCSO, James from the local police force who helped the students to understand why evidence is so important.

The Challenge: Crime Scene Challenge

Over the course of the day, the students 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, 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 guilty culprit. Continuing to practice their Working in a Team skills, it was then time to present their case to the case officer.

What they said:

  • “Today was a very different style of day for my students but they handled it so well and really showed their Team Work and Listening Carefully skills.” – Teacher
  • “I saw some real leaders emerge today, I think my class learnt that leading is about listening not just talking the loudest.” – Teacher
  • “I’m really proud of my whole team, we all pulled together and supported one another.” – Student
  • “I did my best today and used all the evidence.” – Student
  • “The kids have loved today, even at lunch and break time they were outside looking for clues! – Parent

Thanks to everyone for such a great Challenge Day!
