The School: Pelham Primary School

Pelham Primary School in Merton, have been working with Enabling Enterprise for the last 3 years. The school is committed to the development of enterprise skills in their students and have previously completed the ‘Crime Scene‘ Challenge, ‘A Day in Politics’ and Operation: Moonbase challenge days.

The Challenge: Future Transport

Throughout the day, teams had to research, design, build and test a new form of transport for the future. Students considered different vehicles and a variety of challenging environments, before Sharing Ideas to design and build their own imaginative vehicle. The creative prototypes, made from recycled materials, were certainly eye catching!

The Results:

Classes from Years 1 to 6 embraced the Future Transport challenge; stretching their Use of Imagination and Problem Solving skills, resolving a number of difficulties in order to design their new form of transport. Groups showed great Working in a Team skills, whilst also Aiming High and Staying Positive in order to complete the challenge. They Listened Carefully to others and Shared their Ideas confidently with other groups at the end of the day. Teachers were delighted to be able to award skills points aplenty!

What they said:

  • “The situation and narrative means that all students can access this and come up with some fantastic ideas!” – Teacher, Year 1
  • “We’ve had to use all the skills today in our teams and now our vehicle looks the best!” – Student, Year 3
  • “We worked well as a team and used our imaginations brilliantly, as we engaged our testers with our fantastic idea and model.” – Student, Year 6

Well done to everyone who was involved.
