A Fun Friday at Freshfields

Students from four schools ventured to Fleet Street on Friday, where they were given the chance to show off their inventive flair at one of the UK’s most prestigious law firms. The children had been taking part in Enabling Enterprise’s introductory programme ‘Trash to Treasure’, supported by Freshfields. They were given the task of creating an environmentally friendly toy, and the two winning teams from each school had the opportunity to exhibit their product at Freshfields. They bravely presented their creations to a room of over fifty people, including a panel of judges and several volunteers from across the firm.

After a number of teambuilding exercises and warm up games, the students set to work on their presentation skills, preparing for the launch of their inventions in the afternoon. Volunteers were getting stuck in by helping their group to develop its presentation – the competition was heating up!

After lunch, each team showed off its invention by giving a five minute pitch. The talented toymakers showed true creative panache, with ideas ranging from a football game complete with changeable scoreboard to a toy box on wheels.
The day was a great success and was capped off by a surprise visit from the London Olympic mascots Wenlock and Mandeville. Well done to the students of West London Academy, Isle of Sheppey Academy, Lark Hall Primary School and Oasis Academy Shirely Park Junior School. Our congratulations go to the girls of Lark Hall Primary School and their victorious recycling robot. Thank you to the team at Freshfields for making it such a great day!
