The School: Beechwood Primary School

Beechwood Primary School in Luton have been working with Enabling Enterprise since 2015, with students engaging in Challenge Days, lesson-time projects and trips to top businesses to develop their enterprise skills. Today, Year 3 and 4 were surprised when they arrived at school to find out about an exciting opportunity to develop their skills even further by working together in the Greetings Cards Challenge!

The Challenge: Greetings Cards Challenge

Greetings Card challenges the pupils at Using Imagination and Working in a Team as together they must choose a theme for their cards, agree on a design and get a production line up and running to make and sell as many cards as possible before time runs out. Then Sharing Ideas becomes even more important as they must pitch to the judges and explain why their card company should be chosen as the winning team.

The Results:

With so much excitement in each of the classes, it was very important for students to be Listening Carefully to their teammates’ ideas and to make quick team decisions. It didn’t take long for them to realise that the key to success was Staying Positive and learning from mistakes they made along the way. The cards produced were of a very high standard and reflective of the collaborative effort of the team in Aiming High while working towards their common goal.

What they said:

  • “The pupils had a fantastic day and it helped me to get to know the strengths of my class early in the school year” – Teacher, Year 3
  • “We couldn’t agree and we started to argue but we voted together and now we are getting on much better!” – Student, Osprey Class

Well done to everyone who was involved.
