The School: Scotts Primary School

Scotts Primary School in Havering are in their first year of working with Enabling Enterprise to develop their students’ key enterprise skills. Earlier this year, five students had the opportunity to go on a business trip to Aon where their Problem Solving and Working in a Team skills were put to the test! Today it was the turn of the whole of Key Stage 2 to take on the exciting challenge of “Operation Moonbase” and put into practice their Using Imagination and Working in a Team skills.

The Challenge: Operation Moonbase

The Scotts students were set the challenge of creating their very own society from scratch on a distant planet in case the world becomes too overcrowded or polluted. The Year 3 to 6 students had to work in teams to first decide on the crew they would take to their new planet, Utopia, before Using Imagination to come up with a brand new animal which would help out the people living there.

The Results:

It was brilliant to see how well the Scotts students worked together in their teams and were so great at Listening Carefully to their team mates and taking on board other people’s ideas, particularly when they were building the model of their cities to a tight deadline. Finally, each team presented back their idea for Utopia and all the students effectively used their Sharing Ideas skill to persuade the rest of their class that their society was the best.

What they said:

  • “It’s been so interesting to see them interacting with each other and using these skills. I’ve been surprised in a really good way with their teamwork skills and how creatively they have thought about the different challenges.” – Teacher
  • “It’s been really hard to make the city as there was not much time but we used our Staying Positive skills to make sure we were calm and kept being positive to each other to keep going.” – Student

Well done to everyone who was involved.
