The School: Beech Hill Primary School

Beech Hill Primary School in Luton are in their third year of working with Enabling Enterprise to help their students develop skills such as Aiming High and Problem Solving. This was the second Challenge Day the Year 6 students have been involved in this year which meant that expectations were very high for how the teams would work together. Let’s see what happened!

The Challenge: Social Entrepreneur

In teams, the students explored the new concept of ‘Social Enterprise’ in preparation for setting up their own social enterprise with a clear mission statement. After looking at different sectors of society and the specific problems they face, teams were set the challenge of coming up with ideas of how they could help the groups. It was crucial that students used their Problem Solving skills to ensure their new ideas were effective and sustainable, as well as Using Imagination to generate multiple ways of addressing these issues.

The Results:

The Year 6 students demonstrated maturity and genuine empathy in their approach to this significant challenge. Working in a Team, they were able to generate exciting new ideas including creative logos and mission statements which would clearly communicate the aims of their new organisations. Some of their ideas supported multiple groups in need, including healthy meals and professional training for the homeless, and social clubs for the elderly and disabled persons to meet together. The day culminated with the opportunity for teams to Share Ideas in some persuasive and inspiring presentations.

What they said:

  • “They are really thinking about other people today. Their ideas are from the heart.” – Teacher, Year 6
  • “Our team worked well together as we all put our ideas into this project.” – Student, Year 6

Well done to everyone who was involved.
