The School: William Davis Primary

William Davis is situated in the heart of the borough of Tower Hamlets, close to the hustle and bustle of Brick Lane. Students from the very youngest in Nursery and Reception, to the oldest in year 6 all took park in this exciting day which their first encounter with Enabling Enterprise and a great way to introduce the Challenge Skills to everyone at the school.

The Challenge: Moonbase Challenge Day

During the day, the children worked in teams to complete a series of tasks which were designed to develop a certain set of important life skills, such as team work, sharing ideas and staying positive. The children thought about who would be best to send to a distant moon to start a new civilisation; a doctor, a farmer, a vet or a builder were some of the jobs they debated in teams to make their perfect crew. Teamwork, sharing ideas and staying positive were especially important skills the children honed over the day as they designed a new species of animal, created a 3D model of their dream city and then gave persuasive presentations about why their groups’ ideas were the best to the rest of their class.

The Results:

All the students rose to the task particularly well and the quality of the models was especially noteworthy, as was the younger children’s ability to share out the tasks and cooperate to get the job done.

What they said:

  • “It’s been great to see the children being more aware of the skills they are using rather than just focussing on the outcome” – Teacher, William Davis
  • “Today we’ve learnt that it’s much better if you work together in a team to get something done. You can help each other out and make sure everyone is happy. ” – Student, William Davis

Well done to everyone who was involved.
