The School: De Lucy Primary

Students at De Lucy Primary have been developing enterprise skills such as Aiming High and Staying Positive since September 2015. Last year, they took part in the ‘Day in Politics’ Challenge Day, setting up their own political parties. Today, they took on a new role: Years 5 and 6 became computer game designers, and Years 1 to 4 became police detectives.

The Challenge: Crime Scene Challenge

It was due to be a quiet day at De Lucy Primary school, until it was discovered all of the chocolate in the school had been stolen! Working in Teams, students were set the challenge of analysing lots of different pieces of evidence to decide who could have committed this crime. They had to Listen Carefully to make sure they had all of the facts, before making their final decision and presenting it back.

The Challenge: Level Up!

Over the course of the day, students delved into the world of gaming and Work in Teams to design and code a new computer game, set in their very own school! The students used the eight challenge skills; reflecting on their school values, researching computer games and coding a platform game that showcases what makes their school great! At the end of the day, the students took their games to be previewed at the EE Game Expo!

The Results:

With two challenge days taking place, the school was filled with students energetically improving their skills. Fantastic Working in a Team and Leading skills were seen throughout the school, with students producing brilliant work in their groups. Years 1-4, showed great Problem Skills and Listening Carefully skills, as they tried to catch the Sugar Snatches. Whilst Year 5 and 6 showed excellent Using Imagination and Aiming High skills, as they designed, developed and previewed their new game ideas. The day culminated with all year groups Sharing Ideaspresenting their ideas to their audience, with the teachers very proud and impressed with their skills.

What they said:

  • “The kids have really got into this day – I always really enjoy teaching enterprise. You see children who are normally quiet really come to life!” – Teaching Assistant, Year 2
  • “I’ve always wanted to make computer games; I really want to do this for a job! I like using imagination in this way.” – Student, Year 5

Well done to everyone who was involved.
