The School: Weston Park Primary School

Weston Park Primary School is located in Crouch End and is in its third year of working with Enabling Enterprise. The students have had lots of experience of Challenge Days, having previously taken part in two other challenges over the year. This day was a great opportunity for Weston Park to build on the enterprise skills they have been developing throughout the year.

The Challenge: Operation Moonbase

Students were introduced to their challenge for the day in a whole-school assembly, where they discovered that Earth was no longer fit for human life and they needed to create a new colony on a recently-discovered moon called Utopia. Teams were set the task of selecting the ideal crew for the mission, weighing up the pros and cons of taking different crew members with different skillsets. They also had to work within in a budget to design the new city on their moon colony. After building a 3D model of this city, teams had to keep Working as a Team as they were given the final task of presenting their ideas to the rest of their class in the form of an elevator pitch at an Intergalactic Trade Fair.

The Results:

Across the school, different classes had various priorities for their new Moon Base, but all were equally creative and innovative. Teachers and the Enabling Enterprise team were hugely impressed with the collaboration and teamwork shown by all teams, and by the students’ ability to Stay Positive in the face of all the challenges thrown at them!

What they said:

  • “I’ve been impressed with how the teams have been asking one another for their ideas instead of one person just putting down their own answer.” – Teacher, Year 1
  • “I’m proud of my team because we shared our ideas. When we had to decide what to do we made sure we took a vote so everybody had the chance to give their ideas.” – Student, Year 3

Well done to everyone who was involved.
