The School:

Beech Hill Primary School is in their 4th year working with Enabling Enterprise. Previously, students have been busy developing their Enterprise Skills by participating in Challenge Days and visiting London businesses. Today’s challenge was a fantastic opportunity for students from Year 4 to put their Enterprise Skills to the test.

The Challenge: Greetings Card Challenge

Students explored the world of enterprise by setting up and running their own greeting cards company. Over the course of the challenge, students were Working in a Team to manage a production line and sell a new range of greetings cards in the EE shop. In particular, teams had to use their Problem Solving skills to ensure that everyone in their team had contributed to the final design and creation of their new greetings cards. As the clock ticked away, teams raced to outdo their competitors, sell the most cards and generate the biggest profit. In order to win over future customers, teams competed to deliver a convincing business pitch, before the final winners were decided.

What they said:

  • “These skills are what are really important now, and the children usually don’t have any time to work on them.” – Teacher
  • “It was a great experience to observe the students differently. One of my quietest children showed how she could be a great leader in a way I hadn’t seen before.” – Teacher
  • “Even if we don’t win, we’ve really enjoyed the day!” – Student
  • “A few things went wrong at the beginning but we really improved at Working in a Team during the day.” – Student

Thanks to everyone for such a great Challenge Day!
