The School: Morecambe Bay Community Primary School

Morecambe Bay Community Primary school is in Lancashire is an exciting and dynamic school dedicated to creating lifelong learners. The staff and pupils were excited to be working with Enabling Enterprise for the first time and showing how great they were at working in a team and using their imaginations.

The Challenge: Operation Moonbase

The challenge was to make a new society on Planet Utopia. The pupils worked together in teams from different year groups to solve important problems such as who to take in their crew and what were the most important things to build. They also had to use their imaginations and listen to their team mates’ ideas in order to create their very own animal. The children had to Aim High and make the best society they could in order to win the vote of the rest of the class.

The Results:

The pupils rose to the challenge wonderfully and proved that they could be successful managers, designers and builders. They stayed positive when things got tough and were able to showcase their leadership skills through working with pupils from different year groups. There was no shortage of creativity as they readily and happily shared their ideas with one another and thoughtfully designed new worlds that reflected the needs of society. A great day! Well done to everyone at Morecambe Bay Community Primary School.

What they said:

  • “It was a great opportunity for older students to develop their Leadership skills through working with younger children. It was great for all the pupil to have time in the curriculum dedicated to creativity and team work. It gave everyone an opportunity to learn in new ways.” – Teacher, Year 1
  • “I had so much fun today, it was better doing this in a team than doing it on my own because we listened to each other and that made our ideas even better.” – Student, Year 4

Well done to everyone who was involved.
