The School: Woodhouse Primary Academy

Having recently completed the Going Live project creating fantastic reports about film and with a recent trip to Bromford Housing under their belt, the Year 5 students at Woodhouse Primary Academy were ready and set to put the Enterprise skills to the test with Operation Moonbase.

The Challenge: Operation Moonbase

Following the revelation that human civilisation may need to find another planet to move to in the future the students were ready to put their Problem Solving skills to the test. Having decided which human beings would be best to take to their news planets, the students deployed their Using Imagination skills to design a new animal that would provide protection for their new civilizations. Problem Solving was revisited once the students started making their new cities in the sky with giant rockets being built ready for the journey.

The Results:

Working in mixed teams across the year group proved to be a highlight for students and staff, with many teams being awarded points for their Woking in a Team challenge skills. Natural leaders emerged in some teams and everybody had a chance to take a turn and share their ideas with the team. Confident presentations were shared at the end of the day with all students pleased they had worked together with someone new.

What they said:

  • “The students love to get involved with activities like this and they have responded well to their new teams. It has been a really good day. ” – Teacher, Woodhouse Primary Academy
  • “I have never worked with the people in my team before, if I had the chance to choose my team again I would choose this team as we have really worked well together on our ideas” – Student, Woodhouse Primary Academy

Well done to everyone who was involved.
