The School:

Shaftesbury Park Primary, a French bilingual school in Battersea, is in their 2nd year of working with Enabling Enterprise. Previously, students have been busy developing their Enterprise Skills by running Lesson-Time Projects, Trips to Employers and a previous 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. It was brilliant to welcome in the parents for an open morning, kicked off with an introduction to Enabling Enterprise and sharing how Shaftesbury Park are embedding skill development throughout their curriculum. Parents were encouraged to use the common language of skills at home and then took time to visit classes to see the Challenge Day in action.

The Challenge: Level Up!

Over the course of the day, students delved into the world of gaming and used their Working in a Team skills to design and code a new computer game set in their very own school! In a series of tasks based on eight Enterprise Skills, such as Using Imagination and Problem Solving, teams needed to reflect on their school values, research computer games and code a platforming game that showcased what makes their school great. The day culminated in EE Games Expo, where each team presented their exciting new game.

What they said:

  • “It’s been really interesting to take a step back and observe the children in their teams and watch how well they work together.” – Teacher
  • “Putting the students in lots of different contexts has really pushed the skills focus.” – Teacher
  • “We’ve used problem solving today to help include everyone’s ideas.” – Y3 Student
  • “We had to share our ideas to bring our game worlds together.” – Y2 Student

Thanks to everyone for such a great Challenge Day!
