Dagenham schoolchildren become detectives for challenge day
PUBLISHED: 07:00 02 June 2016
Wannabe detectives were confronted with a crime scene – at their primary school.
Year four, five and six pupils from Five Elms in Dagenham tested their problem solving skills by collecting evidence for a sweet-stealing scenario as part of challenge day.
Meanwhile youngsters in years one to three created colourful greetings cards.
Enabling Enterprise is working with staff and pupils at the Wood Lane school to develop life skills.
Chantelle Scott, education associate for Enabling Enterprise, said: “Challenge day is such a great way for the children to build on the skills they have been practising through their projects.
“We all had such a fantastic time – you could feel the buzz around the school.”
