The School: Wendell Park Primary

Wendell Park Primary based in Hammersmith and Fulham are in their third year of working with Enabling Enterprise, they are dedicated to ensuring that their students develop key enterprise skills for the future. As well as running Lesson Time Projects and attending Business Trips across London, the whole school took on their annual Challenge Day. Students and teachers were well prepped, incredibly excited and looking forward to the day ahead!

The Challenge: Operation Moonbase

As planet Earth ages, the problems of overcrowding and pollution worsen, thankfully there is a distant moon, far off in the galaxy which is empty and waiting for human inhabitants! The United Nations have set the challenge to Wendell Park students to design and make a new society where humans could move to should they Earth become uninhabitable. Teams across the school embraced this challenge with great enthusiasm, choosing a suitable crew, designing a new animal and building their cities of Utopia to persuade people to join them in their new world.

The Results:

It was quite amazing seeing the students Using Imagination and Working in a Team to enable them to succeed in this mission. From Year 1 to Year 5, creative Moonbases were springing up complete with schools, hospitals and sport stadiums. Applying their problem-solving and leading skills at the highest standard, they created their model dream city within tight deadlines.

What they said:

  • “The use of imagination was so evident today. The students have created some fantastic models and really used their creativity” – Teacher, Year 5
  • “I feel like a young child doing a big person’s job.” – Student, Year 4
  • “It’s been hard but I like that you have to work as a team to get things done.” – Student, Year 3

Well done to everyone who was involved.
