The School: Chase Side Primary School

Chase Side Primary School in Enfield have been working with Enabling Enterprise since 2013, showing their commitment to supporting the development of enterprise skills including Aiming High and Working in a Team. Earlier this year, the whole school was involved in a challenge day, so today was an opportunity for teachers to really stretch their students and to witness their creativity in action for their new gaming-based challenge.

The Challenge: Level Up!

All eight of the enterprise skills were required for students to successfully complete the many stages in developing a new computer game! They began the day researching the elements of their school environment and values which would become the setting and theme of their game. It was crucial that teams were Using Imagination to design the characters and obstacles within their game world, before mastering their communication skills when coding the precise movement of their characters. It was then time for the students to show off their ideas in a final presentation to their class at the EE expo!

The Results:

The fast-pace of the day meant that Staying Positive was fundamental to students’ success. Many of the teams proudly overcame differences in opinion to create a game which truly combined the ideas of the entire team. For years 4, 5 and 6, many students were working together for the very first time and impressed their teachers with their determination and ability in Sharing Ideas with each other. The final presentations at the EE expo were a fantastic opportunity for all teams to see the amazing progress across the day.

What they said:

  • “Seeing the students engage with coding and computer games, shows how important it is to develop these Challenge Skills in a variety of different contexts” – Teacher
  • “It is important for us to share ideas, so we can Aim High as a team and do our very best with all of our ideas!” – Student, Year 2

Well done to everyone who was involved.
