Sacred Heart Primary School
Based in Luton, Sacred Heart Primary School has been working with Enabling Enterprise since 2019 to develop a set of eight Essential Skills in their students. Since then, students have been practising their essential skills through Challenge Days.
Crime Scene Investigation
Over the course of the day, students worked in teams as police investigators to solve the case of the Sugar Snatcher. Having been presented with the suspects, time was of the essence to examine the evidence. Following police procedures such as fingerprint analysis and evaluating evidence at the crime scene itself, the aspiring detectives put their Problem Solving skills to the test to help them build a convincing case for who they thought the culprit was. Continuing to practise their Teamwork skills, some teams put together the most persuasive evidence boards to put forward their case for the culprit. The enterprising police recruits then shone with their Presenting skills as it was time to report their findings to the Case Officer.
I liked looking at all the clues for the crime. I felt like a real investigator.

It was great to witness the amount of talking and collaboration taking place between the students. It's been an amazing day for them.
