Gunter Primary School
Gunter Primary School are keen to ensure children across the school have opportunities to work creatively and collaboratively whilst using their essential skills. Today's enterprising challenge was a great chance for everyone to be focusing on developing their 'skills'.

On arrival at their hosts, the students were introduced to volunteers who would be assisting them in their challenge on the day. They then found out more about the business by going on a tour and interviewed the volunteers to find out how they use the Essential Skills in their roles, particularly focusing on the use of Problem Solving and Presenting skills. Then, working in teams, the students started working on their different cases, either as the defence or prosecution. With the help of the volunteers, they identified the best arguments, analysed evidence and listened to witness statements as they prepared to go to trial. At the close of the day, they presented their evidence to a judge and jury made of volunteers who decided the outcome of each case.
