The School: Audley Primary School

Audley Primary School are in their fourth year of working with Enabling Enterprise. Students from the school have already been on a number of interesting employer visits this year to further develop their enterprise skills and have completed lesson time projects successfully; therefore, everyone was extremely excited to take on today’s Future Transport Challenge.

The Challenge: Future Transport

Throughout the day, teams had to research, design, build and test a new form of transport for the future. Students considered different vehicles and a variety of challenging environments, before sharing ideas to design and build their own imaginative vehicle. The creative prototypes, made from recycled materials were certainly eye catching!

The Results:

Classes from Year 1, 3, 4 & 5 embraced the Future Transport Challenge, stretching their imagination skills to solve a range of problems in order to design their new form of transport. Teams worked well together, aiming high and remaining positive in order to complete the challenge. They listened carefully to others and shared their ideas confidently to other groups at the end of the day. Teachers were delighted to be able to award skills points aplenty!

What they said:

  • “Today, not only did I see the children grow academically but they grew as people, learning keys skills in life that they will always need.” – Teacher, Year 1
  • “I really enjoyed working together today, using our imaginations to create a new form of transport! I’m proud of the skills my team used.” – Student, Year 5
  • “We are getting better at team work – it’s fun to share ideas and come up with an even better idea for our team. – Student, Year 3

Well done to everyone who was involved.
