The School: Bellfield Junior School

Bellfield Junior School, in Northfield, Birmingham are a new Enabling School and kicked off their enterprise education work with a whole school challenge day to introduce their 7 to 11 year olds to the essential enterprise skills.

The Challenge: Operation Moonbase

An assembly to begin the day saw the whole school community come together to find out all about the exciting Enabling Enterprise mission. The children, supported by their teachers, needed to work together, share their great ideas and use their imaginations to select the crew for a very special space adventure, which would see the enterprising teams designing and creating a brave new world, including animal species in a far off galaxy!

The Results:

Each enterprise team impressed with their enthusiasm and engagement from start to finish. From the ideas that were shared, to the crazy creatures that were created, each class across the school pulled together to design a new Moonbase in outer space. The cross curricular skills used, from making 3D models of the buildings in their intergalactic cities, to employing their science knowledge to create new animals with multiple functions was a joy to see and evidence that Bellfield Junior School are serious about providing opportunities for their students to develop life-long skills, offer enterprising opportunities and raise their aspirations.

What they said:

  • “This has been great – the children have been able to work together on this creative task so well today. Look – they are all involved. No issues. Just great to see.” – Teacher, Year 6 Bellfield Junior School
  • “I enjoyed working with new people and making tough decisions. I feel like I have improved my teamwork skills already.” – Student, Year 5 Bellfield Junior School
  • “We worked better as a group because we listened to each other – that helped us understand what we wanted as a group.” – Student, Year 3 Bellfield Junior School

Well done to everyone who was involved.
