The School:

Kinlet Primary School and Farlow Primary School are in their second year of working with Enabling Enterprise. Previously, students have been busy developing their Enterprise Skills through their business trips and lesson time projects. Last year both schools joined forces to complete their ‘Operation: Moonbase‘ Challenge Day, and have come together again for this year’s challenge. Everyone was excited to put their Enterprise Skills to the test and couldn’t wait to get going!


The Challenge: Future Transport

Over the course of the day, students were Working in a Team to research, design, build and test a new form of transport for the future. They were set the challenge from Ronnie the Robot who’d travelled back in time to explain what the world would be like many years in the future. Teams applied their Problem Solving and Staying Positive skill through a series of challenges designed to put their skills to the test. At the end of the day, students tested each other’s designs and practised their presenting by Sharing Ideas in front of the class.

What they said:

  • “Enabling Enterprise has really helped the children’s skill development, especially listening. They have come a long way!” – Teacher
  • “You wouldn’t be able to tell the different between the two schools, they are working so well together. Enabling Enterprise has really helped bring the Federation together.” – Teacher
  • “I now want to get better at Staying Positive so I don’t panic when we don’t have much time left!” – Student, Year 4
  • “I showed good Working in a Team skills today because I helped my teammate who is in the Reception class. ” – Student, Year 2

Thanks to everyone from Kinlet CE and Farlow CE Primary Schools for such a great Challenge Day!
