The School: Tenterfields Primary School

Tenterfields Primary School is a one-form entry school located in Halesowen. Students across the school are very familiar with the challenge skills and have been developing their enterprise skills by taking part in a variety of Lesson-Time Projects. Alongside developing their enterprise skills in lessons, students across the school have participated in many Enterprise visits to employers, including Lovell and Morgan Motors.

The Challenge: Future Transport

Today’s challenge calls upon the students to apply their team work to solve a problem and use their imagination. Most importantly, teams must work together to design and create a futuristic and innovative prototypes to cope with wide ranging environments. The day ends with teams swapping designs and completing quality control testing before analysing how well the prototypes meet the success criteria.

The Results:

It was evident from very early on this morning how the students at Tenterfields have embraced the Enabling Enterprise challenge skills. During assembly students from all years were able to describe their business trips and explain how the challenge skills have helped them during their group tasks. The students were Working in a Team so well that they quickly turned their junk into perfect prototypes of their futuristic designs.

What they said:

  • “I was impressed by how some students really grew in confidence in their team work and presentation skills– Teacher, Year 4
  • “I’m really proud of how my team worked so well together” – Student, Year 6

Well done to everyone who was involved.
