The School: Claremont Primary

Students at Claremont Primary in Manchester have been developing enterprise skills such as Staying Positive and Working in a Team for the past two years. Last year, they competed to become winning political parties during their Day in Politics challenge day. This year, they have taken part in lesson time projects and some lucky students have even come out onto trips at top businesses such as Brewin Dolphin and One.Manchester.

Students were excited to apply their skills to a brand new space-themed challenge. Let’s find out how they got on…

The Challenge: Operation Moonbase

Students were set the challenge to set up a brand new society on a distant moon called Utopia. They applied their Problem Solving and Using Imagination to choose a space crew, design a new species of animal and build an entire city from scratch. At the end of the challenge, students worked together to rehearse and present a series of persuasive pitches to convince people that their ideas were the best in the galaxy!

The Results:

Throughout the challenge, students thought carefully about how to delegate tasks so that everyone in their team was busy and that everything got finished within the tight deadlines. They Aimed High when building their city maps, ensuring they were constructing all buildings to the highest standard.

What they said:

  • “The challenge encouraged students to consider multiple factors when solving problems. They were so engaged, it prompted them to listen really carefully to each other” – Teacher, Year 1
  • “I’ve had such a great day, I loved every single bit!” – Student, Year 2

Well done to everyone who was involved.
