The Schools: English Martyrs’ Catholic Primary School

English Martyrs’ Catholic Primary School, who are located in Sparkhill, Birmingham, have been working with EE since January 2015. The EE team were working with a group of 30 children from Year 4.

The Business: The Bulling, Birmingham

Bullring is one of Europe’s largest city centre shopping centres, accommodating 165 stores which attracts around 35 million visitors a year. It houses two anchor stores; one of only four Selfridges department stores and the fourth largest Debenhams in the UK.

The Challenge: Retail revelations

The students had a detailed tour of the Bullring, helping them with their challenge which was creating a cultural shopping attraction with a theme and different technological gadgets. In order to do this, the children needed to use their imagination and share the ideas they created.

The Results:

The children were really excited to share their imaginative ideas with the judges at the end of the day. They really excelled at using their imagination, for example, they created a free chocolate factory and a big water fountain within the shopping centre.

What they said:

  • “A fantastic challenge day today. All groups of children working well together on tasks given. All enthusiastic, coming up with great theme ideas.” – Teacher, English Martyrs’
  • “Working with the children was very rewarding. Their interest and enthusiasm for the Bullring was really good.” – Volunteer, The Bullring
  • “The thing which I have enjoyed the most is the tour because I learnt some things which I never knew before.” – Student, English Martyrs’

Thanks to The Bullring for such a great trip day, and to Year 4 from English Martyrs’ for coming along.
