The School:

Coppermill Primary School is in their fourth year working with Enabling Enterprise. In previous years, students have been developing their Enterprise Skills by taking part in employer visits to businesses in London, or by becoming crime scene detectives solving the case of the ‘Sugar Snatcher’. Today’s challenge was a fantastic opportunity for students across the whole school, from Reception to Year 6 to put their Enterprise Skills to the test.

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 others’ designs and practised their presenting by Sharing Ideas in front of the class.

What they said:

  • “It’s been really great to see them being so creative – I wish they could do this every week” – Teacher
  • “I loved the way it linked to our school values… It’s really clear that the students have really thought about their designs and applied themselves to the challege” – Teacher
  • “The whole school took part and it was a brilliant success – teamwork, creativity and skills abounded” – Teacher
  • “We got a point for Working in a Team because we were taking our turns and sharing the paper” – Student
  • “It was hard at first but then we really all got into it and realised that we were only ever going to make something great if we all worked as a team” – Student

Thanks to everyone for such a great Challenge Day!
