The School: Featherstone Primary School

Featherstone Primary School in Ealing, are in their first year of an Enabling Enterprise programme. This Challenge Day was their first experience with the eight Enterprise Challenge Skills. The school is committed to developing new ways to build the confidence of their students and the staff and pupils are looking forward to their Business trip later this term!

The Challenge: Level Up!

Over the course of the day, students delved into the world of gaming whilst Working in a Team to design and code a new computer game, set in their very own school! The students used all eight of the enterprise skills, reflecting on their school values whilst teams also researched computer games and created a platform game that showcased what makes their school great.

The Results:

The Year 5 and 6 students were eager to show their Using Imagination and Aiming High skills from the off; as they designed, developed and previewed their new game ideas for an EE Game Expo. By the end of the day it was clear that Year 5 and 6 had understood their task: with each team producing creative game concepts such as cleaning the pond area of their school before running out of air and beating the slime monsters. The teachers were very proud and impressed with their primary enterprise skills, so it was no surprise the scoreboards in each classroom were filled with skill points!

What they said:

  • “The project was so accessible. My whole class were instantly gripped by its relatable subject. Even lower ability and SEN students were able to positively add value to their team.” – Teacher, Year 5
  • “We all wrote down our ideas and then discussed them. I wanted our game in the library because I like books but the rest of the group wanted it in the sports hall. I was still happy because that was the team’s decision.” – Student, Year 6
  • “If we don’t aim high we will never know what we can achieve.” – Student, Year 5

Well done to everyone who was involved.
