The School: Whitehall Junior School

Whitehall Junior School is taking part in their second year of Enabling Enterprise. They kicked off their enterprise this year with the Business in a Day Challenge Day where students worked in teams to set up and run souvenir companies. Year 5 students have already completed their Autumn project Going Live where students set up their own radio podcasts and some very lucky students have also been on an Enabling Enterprise trip to London Business School where they saw which skills were needed to be successful later in life.

The Challenge: Business in a Day

Business in a Day saw Whitehall Junior students work hard in their teams to come up with creative designs for the souvenirs they would sell to promote and remind everyone of their happy memories of Whitehall Junior School. The students had to use their listening carefully and sharing ideas skills throughout the day in order to communicate and work well in their teams to ensure everyone felt valued and included.

The Results:

Year 3 Whitehall Junior School students had to use their imagination to come up with creative designs for their badge souvenirs while Year 4 students worked hard to share their ideas when they were deciding on a logo for their souvenir company. In Years 5 and 6 students showed their excellent teamwork and leadership skills by running smooth team meetings to make decisions about who was doing what job and which final design ideas they wanted for their souvenir.

What they said:

  • “The students are really enjoying running their own company and it has been great to see them solving problems among themselves when they have come up against obstacles while designing their souvenirs.” – Teacher, Whitehall Junior School
  • “Tara is a great team leader because she isn’t bossy and she listens to all of us.” – Year 4 student, Whitehall Junior School

Well done to everyone who was involved.
