The School: Willow Brook Primary

Students at Willow Brook Primary School in Leyton have kick-started their second year of developing enterprise skills with another exciting challenge day. Last year, students went on trips to businesses such as law firm Nabarro and ran projects in class such as developing their own chocolate brand.

The Challenge: Operation Moonbase

The day began with an assembly where the students found out that they had been specially selected by the United Nations to create a colony for humans on the newly-discovered moon, Utopia. Students across all year groups had to ensure they were Working in a Team throughout the day to complete a number of challenges: selecting the crew for their mission, creating a new animal to accompany the human race on Utopia, and then designing and building a city they had planned, Using Imagination like never before.

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:

  • “Today has been great: my class have really struggled with teamwork since September and today I’ve seen a big improvement.” – Teacher, Year 3
  • “Our city is the best and the people will be happy because we will give them the best life and make them fit and happy.” – Student, Year 1

Well done to everyone who was involved.
