The School: Dairy Meadow Primary School

Dairy Meadow is an Enabling Enterprise partner school in Ealing. They kick-started their Primary enterprise learning earlier this year with an exciting challenge day, where they solved a crime. Over the year they will be taking on lesson time projects to further their abilities in eight key enterprise skills.

The Business: UBS, London

UBS is a global bank, providing services in over 50 countries. Specialising in Wealth Management and Global Asset Management they provide services for high net worth individuals, private, corporate, and institutional clients all over the world. Worldwide, UBS employs over 60,000 people, who speak more than 130 languages and are citizens of 135 countries.

The Challenge: Trading Triumphs

The Year 4 students were split into teams to take on the roles of traders for the day, practising their problem solving skills as they made fast paced trading decisions based on up-to-the-minute news. After touring the trading floor, the students worked together in their teams to analyse information from a number of sources before making their trades.

The Results:

At the end of the day the trading teams presented their results to a panel of investors. By justifying the trades they had made and identifying the key skills they had used across the day, the students were able to demonstrate how well they had utilised their listening skills in completing the challenge.

What they said:

  • “I love seeing kids who don’t usually get involved sharing their ideas!” – Teacher, Dairy Meadow
  • “I’m really impressed by how well they were able to understand the complex issues of trading.” – Volunteer, UBS
  • “We voted to make decisions in our team, to make it fair for everyone.” – Student, Dairy Meadow

Thanks to UBS for such a great trip day, and to Year 4 from Dairy Meadow for coming along.
