The School: Seely Primary School

Seely Primary in Nottingham is a large school who are in their second year of working with Enabling Enterprise. The pupils from Years 1, 3, 4 and 5 took part in the Greetings Card Challenge Day to launch this year’s Enterprise curriculum and will start their Lesson Time Projects after Easter.

The Challenge: Greetings Card Challenge

To be successful in the Greetings Card Challenge the pupils must Use Their Imagination, Share Ideas and Listen Carefully to one another to design an exciting and unique set of greetings cards. Then, they must Work as a Team in order to make an efficient production line that enables them to make as many, identical cards as possible. The winning teams are those that can make great cards and can pitch their designs to their teachers in engaging presentations.

The Results:

The pupils proved themselves to be more than capable of raising to the challenge by Aiming High and making exciting greetings cards which covered themes from Dogs Birthday’s to Halloween, Christmas to Easter. All year groups proved they could Stay Positive when they had disagreements and they soon learned that doing what was best for the team led to success.

What they said:

  • “The Working in a Team was such an important lesson for my class today. It was difficult but they really improved through the day!” – Teacher, Seely Primary School
  • “When you share your ideas with your team, it’s important to say things like ‘Here’s what I’ve done, what do you think about it?‘ so you keep people happy by not being too bossy with them.” – Student, Seely Primary School
  • “We compromised by putting everyone’s ideas together and we think we’ve come up with the best design.” – Student, Seely Primary School

Well done to everyone who was involved.
