The School: Stamford Hill

Stamford Hill in Harringey has been using Enabling Enterprise lesson time projects to teach essential life skills, backed up with exciting trips to top businesses such as London Business School and City University. Their challenge day would be the perfect opportunity to demonstrate these skills to everyone in the school.

The Challenge: Moonbase Challenge

At the start of the day students in every class were set a unique challenge, to design a new civilisation for a new colony on a distant planet. Students from Year 1 to Year 6 would have to use their imaginations to solve the wide variety of problems they would face along the way. But they would not be doing it alone, organised into teams, the students worked together throughout the day to achieve their best results.

The Results:

Students across the school made a huge success of working together, demonstrating great teamwork throughout the day to create a dazzling range of new colonies. It wasn’t all plain sailing though, there were a number of challenges that each group had to face up to meaning they had to stay positive and pull together to reach the end. They were helped in this by some students demonstrating great leadership, helping them coordinate their efforts to maximum effect.

What they said:

  • “It really supports their team building skills, shows them how to work together and communicate better.” – Teacher, Stamford Hill
  • “I enjoyed working in a team to make our model. We helped each other and didn’t argue, if you do it alone there’s no one to help you.” – Student, Stamford Hill

Well done to everyone who was involved.
