The School: Brunswick Park Primary School

Brunswick Park Primary School is located in Barnet and have been working with Enabling Enterprise for several years to develop their students’ enterprise skills. Last year they took part in the Crime Scene Challenge Day and this year they were set the challenge of Operation Moonbase where students have to create a brand new society from scratch on a distant planet.

The Challenge: Operation Moonbase

Operation Moonbase requires the students to use their Using Imagination and Working in a Team skills in order to build the best society on Utopia, a distant planet. To start the day, the Brunswick Park teams had to decide on their crew and create their brand new animal to help the people on their new plant. Next, they built their cities, thinking carefully about which would be useful based on the planet’s environment. At the end of the day, the Brunswick Park students wowed their teachers with confident and persuasive presentations to encourage their classmates to come to their planet!

The Results:

Throughout the day it was brilliant to see the Brunswick Park students collaborating so effectively by using encouragement and making sure they listened carefully to each member of their team. It was also impressive to see the students’ imaginations in action and they created unique animals by building on each other’s ideas and using their surroundings for inspiration.

What they said:

  • “It’s been brilliant, they have not wanted to leave for lunch or break! All the students have been working really well together, it’s been such a pleasure to watch.” – Teacher, Year 6
  • “We’ve got really good at problem solving today as we’ve had to make lots of decisions which have been hard.” – Student, Year 4

Well done to everyone who was involved.
