The School: Oasis Academy Woodview

Oasis Academy Woodview have been working with Enabling Enterprise for 3 years, keen to provide their students with additional opportunities to develop life-long skills through engagement with lesson time projects, business trips and challenge days.

The Challenge: Operation Moonbase

The whole school, from reception to Year 6 joined together for this exciting challenge. Working in mixed aged teams across each key stage it was all systems go from the very start of the day, as reception classes came dressed as aliens and astronauts – ready to explore their Moonbase and older children set to work to devise and develop their own society on the Moon.

The Results:

It was evident that each team was strong in using their imaginations – the creatures created were most impressive and the conversations amongst team mates were dynamic. Enterprise points were awarded for working well together and staying positive as city maps emerged. When it came to preparing presentations, students utilised skills learned on earlier Business Trips and as results and reflections were considered there were many smiling faces. The mission was most definitely accomplished!

What they said:

  • “They have all worked so hard today. I’ve been really impressed with their teamwork, use of imagination and clear, confident presentations. A really good day.” – Teacher, Oasis Academy Woodview
  • “This has been good for us because we need to practise all these important skills.” – Student, Oasis Academy Woodview
  • “I love all our enterprise work – it’s such good fun!” – Student, Oasis Academy Woodview

Well done to all the students, teachers, astronauts and aliens who were involved in the Challenge.
