The School: Archbishop Sumner C of E Primary

Based in Lambeth, Archbishop Sumner are in their second year of developing their students’ enterprise skills through a range of business trips, Lesson-Time Projects and business trips. Building on their recent Enterprise week which saw every year in the school take part, the school wanted to once more put the young entrepreneurs’ imagination and teamwork skills to the test in Enabling Enterprise’s latest challenge.

The Challenge: Future Transport

Ronny the Robot travelled from the future back to 2016 to set students with the task of designing a brand new form of transport for the year 3030 when there will be lots of different environments to contend with. When designing their transport Archbishop Sumner students showed excellent teamwork skills and they used their imagination to come up with a range of really creative designs for their vehicles. Students also aimed high ton include all the right features they needed for their transport.

The Results:

Teams across the school really rose to the challenge when they started making their transport prototype. Team leaders delegated out different jobs and regularly checked in with each other to make sure everyone stayed positive as their new form of transport was taking shape. Throughout the day everyone contributed to delivering a stunning prototype which was produced within tight deadlines and effective teamwork. Students impressed school adults and EE staff with how they applied cross-curricular learning: their shape and space knowledge from Maths was coupled with DT and Science knowledge to create their incredibly thoughtful futuristic designs. The day culminated in a round of professional presentations in their classrooms where there was not a shadow of a doubt that the level of confidence and entrepreneurship had gone through the roof!

What they said:

  • “They have really developed team working in this challenge. Whereas before there was quite a few disagreements, now they have learnt to compromise, so I was pleased to see that” – Teacher, Archbishop Sumner
  • “I actually liked it when things went wrong because we worked as a team to put them right.” – Student, Archbishop Sumner

Well done to everyone who was involved.
