25 May Challenge Day
A Day in Politics
On Thursday 24th May we took part in a challenge day with Enabling Enterprise called ‘A Day in Politics’. Children worked in mixed age group classes and parents were invited to join for the day.
The project aims to develop a core set of eight employability skills and enterprise capabilities in all children.
We learnt about politics, thought about the areas in the world that we wanted to improve and wrote a manifesto about the changes that we wanted to make. We named our parties, designed a logo, slogan and made promotional material. In the final part of the day we presented our ideas and the class voted for their most successful party.
The children thoroughly enjoyed the day, learnt so much about politics and developed their enterprise skills. We are looking forward to seeing these skills used back in the classroom.
