The School:

Holly Park Primary School is in their 4th year working with Enabling Enterprise. Previously, students have been busy developing their Enterprise Skills by creating exciting Greetings Cards and visiting a variety of top London businesses. Today’s challenge was a fantastic opportunity for students from Year 1 to Year 6 to put their Enterprise Skills to the test.


The Challenge: Level Up

Over the course of the day, students delved into the world of gaming and used their Working in a Team skills to design and code a new computer game set in their very own school! In a series of tasks based on eight Enterprise Skills, such as Using Imagination and Problem Solving, teams needed to reflect on their school values, research computer games and code a platforming game that showcased what makes their school great. The day culminated in the EE Games Expo, where each team presented their exciting new game.


What they said:

  • “They came up with much better ideas than I did! There were so keen to get stuck in with big and exciting concepts.” – Teacher
  • “We are peaceful in this team because we made sure we went around the table and we took a little bit of everyone’s ideas to come up with the best game world, and everyone liked it. So we’re feeling confident… and proud!” – Student
  • “I’ve used my imagination on a trip with Enabling Enterprise before and today I have shared my top tips with my team.” – Student
  • “Today they were able to do everything on their own, which is really good for being independent and gets them to think about their creativity and about all of the skills. ” – Teacher

Thanks to everyone for such a great Challenge Day!
