The School: Horizon Primary Academy

Horizon Primary Academy is in their first year of working with Enabling Enterprise. Previously, students in Year 5 have been busy developing their Enterprise Skills by taking part in a trip to Bank of America Merrill Lynch, when they took on the role of financial planners. Today’s challenge was a fantastic opportunity for students 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 Problem Solving and Staying Positive 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:

  • “It’s been great for them to reflect on their skills throughout the day and has helped them think about which ones they’re doing well at and which ones they need to work on more.” – Teacher
  • “You’ve been great at Problem Solving when you had to make last-minute changes to your transport model because of unexpected obstacles and also you’ve managed to Stay Positive despite these setbacks.” – Teacher
  • “I’ve learned about how to use my imagination to make something new. I want to do this every day!” – Student

Thanks to everyone for such a great Challenge Day!
