The School: Dairy Meadow Primary School

Dairy Meadow are passionate about enterprise education. This academic year, they have not only put all their enterprise skills to the test in a whole-school Crime Scene investigation; they are also developing students’ key enterprise skills such as Sharing Ideas and Using Imagination through Lesson-Time Projects such as Year 5’s ‘Number Game’, where students design and create their very own board games.

The Business: London Business School (LBS)

London Business School offers world-class business masters and non-masters for postgraduates, giving them the advantage of global links and international recognition. Their programmes have been given the accolade of being amongst the world’s best, according to the Financial Times.

Students from the Volunteering Club joined Dairy Meadow pupils throughout the day to share their experiences of life at LBS.

The Day: University Challenge

After getting into teams, the students began the day by researching different departments, courses and societies within the school. They meet Student Ambassadors and went on a tour of the facilities at LBS. They then worked in their teams to plan a new society for the LBS students. After this they designed posters to advertise their welcome events and presented all their ideas at a Societies Fair.

The Results:

All of the teams worked really hard and demonstrated great Working in a Team throughout the day. Some students showed off their excellent Leading skills to guide their groups through the tasks with both focus and consideration, whilst others were Using Imagination to the highest standard. The day ended with all of the students confidently Sharing Ideas in front of the ambassadors from LBS.

What they said:

  • “Children really enjoyed every aspect of today and volunteers were a good help to them. I think the children gained an understanding that University is more than just school and classes, that there are many communities that are created through societies.” – Teacher, Dairy Meadow Primary
  • “This group was particularly engaged and very well-behaved, too!” – Ambassador, London Business School
  • “I liked how confident they were in their presentation and how imaginative their society was with all their ideas. I also found that their teamwork was well balanced throughout.” – Ambassador, London Business School
  • “Some students have really impressed me because they took my feedback on board for their presentations and they managed to cleverly implement the advice I gave them.” – Ambassador, London Business School
  • “I’m really proud of my team today because we didn’t give up even when it got difficult.” – Student, Dairy Meadow Primary

Thanks to London Business School for such a great trip day, and to Year 5 from Dairy Meadow for coming along.
