The School: Wormholt Park Primary School

Wormholt Park Primary, based in Hammersmith & Fulham, have been working with Enabling Enterprise to develop their skills for life, through Lesson Time Projects, Business Trips and an exciting Moon Base Challenge Day. The Year 6 classes have been working hard on their ‘Big Business Challenge’ project in class, ready to set up their pop up fair at the end of term to provide their school community with a business which provides a service.

The Business: General Electric

General Electric build appliances, lighting, power systems and other products that help millions of homes, offices, factories, airlines and retail facilities around the world work better. They are well known for their partnership with the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games where their products were used in every sporting venue in London and across the UK to help build a sustainable Olympic Games. This trip is an amazing opportunity for the students to further their knowledge on finance.

The Challenge: Money Matters

The Money Matters challenge aims to inspire and motivate students, as they learn more about General Electric. They are encouraged to develop and reflect on the core skills, for example working in a team, positive thinking and aiming high. Throughout the day they are reminded of these skills and the importance of these skills once they leave school. They get to take part in different activities and learn more about the world of finance. The aim of the day is to get the students to use these skills to come up with ideas for their own sweet shop.

The Results:

Students from Wormholt Park worked excellently in groups and communicated effectively. Students from Wormholt Park listened carefully and worked really hard to complete all the tasks set and make sure everyone was included in the decision-making. They all used their imagination to come up with excellent sweet shop ideas and shared their ideas confidently in the final presentations.

What they said:

  • “The positivity in your teams was great, you were so supportive of each other and stayed really positive despite encountering problems, it was a great day.” – Teacher, Wormholt Park Primary School
