The School: Edgware Primary

Edgware Primary School in Barnet, are in their fifth year of working with Enabling Enterprise. This means that the Year 4 students chosen to take part in the trip were skill experts, ready to build further on the skills they already showed for example on their Crime Scene Challenge Day last year.

The Business: Save the Children, London

Save the Children run world-class programmes to save children’s lives and challenge world leaders to keep to their promises to give children a brighter future. They work in more than 120 countries, including extensive programme to support young people and their families the UK. Today, students were joined by four volunteers from the UK team with job roles ranging from project managers to operations coordinators.

The Challenge: Spread the Word

Today’s challenge was to spread the word about Save the Children by creating an exciting new mascot with an important message. Throughout the day, students asked thoughtful questions to ensure they really understood the work that Save the Children do to help those in poverty and experiencing life-threatening hunger. They had these areas of the charity’s work in mind when they toured the offices and interviewed the staff. Later in the day, the students took on the roles of news anchors and top journalists to report on how Save the Children help young people all over the world.

The Results:

Students demonstrated great Listening Carefully skills by making notes when they were conducting their research. They also applied their Using Imagination skills by combining their ideas for different mascots into their final group designs. In the afternoon, students showed off their Sharing Ideas skills by confidently presenting their news broadcasts to a panel of judges.

What they said:

  • “The day was well explained and presented. The volunteers were lovely and able to work well with the children.” – Teacher, Edgware Primary
  • “They really impressed me with how confidently they presented their ideas in the news broadcast.” – Volunteer, Save the Children
  • “We’ve voted for the ideas that are our favourite so we are working as a team to create our poster.” – Student, Edgware Primary

Thanks to Save the Children for such a great trip day, and to Year 4 from Edgware Primary for coming along.
