The School:

Gospel Oak Primary School, located in the London Borough of Camden, is a two-form entry primary and is in their first year working with Enabling Enterprise. Today’s challenge was a fantastic opportunity for students from Year 3 and Year 4 to put their Enterprise Skills to the test.

The Challenge: Operation Moonbase

Over the course of the day, students used their Working in a Team skills to establish a new society on a distant moon called Utopia. A series of challenges required teams to use their Enterprise Skills, particularly practising their Problem Solving, Using Imagination and Listening Carefully. Teams needed to select a crew to support them on their mission, then design a new species of animal to benefit society before finally creating a model of their own dream city. The day culminated in a series of persuasive pitches at the Intergalactic Trade Fair which gave each team the opportunity to show off their fantastic ideas.


What they said:

  • “The students learn these skills all the time but today we are spending some time explicitly teaching them – it’s really important” – Teacher
  • “Over the day I was so impressed by the progress many students made in the skills, especially their teamwork” – Teacher
  • “I’ve changed my mind lots of times today because I’ve been listening carefully to my team and they have all been sharing ideas to persuade me.” – Student
  • “There were times when my team disagreed but we made sure we didn’t argue and stayed focused on our jobs!” – Student

Thanks to everyone for such a great Challenge Day!
