The School:

Poplar Street Primary School is in their second year working with Enabling Enterprise. Previously, students have been busy developing their Enterprise Skills by taking part in an enterprising ‘Greetings Card‘ Challenge Day. Today’s challenge was a fantastic opportunity for students from Year 1 to Year 6 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:

  • “What a great way to start the year and get to know your kids better. Some really surprising reactions to the tasks. Some kids stepping up and some really challenged, and definitely not the ones I’d have expected.” – Teacher
  • “Another great day. It pushed the kids harder this time with much more challenge to the tasks. They really had to dig deep and use their skills to keep up.” – Teacher
  • “I love enterprise!… I’m dead good at it.” – Student
  • “We found it hard to agree on stuff at the beginning but we stayed positive and the end was amazing, and we all spoke [in the presentations].” – Student

Thanks to everyone for such a great Challenge Day!
