The School: Oasis Byron

Oasis Byron are in their 4th year working with Enabling Enterprise. Previously, students have been busy developing their Enterprise Skills by completing the Future Transport challenge day http://enablingenterprise.org/archives/16965 and trips to Argos http://enablingenterprise.org/archives/18997 and Walter Lily http://enablingenterprise.org/archives/21016. 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: Level Up!

Today, the Oasis Byron students took on the roles of computer game designers and developers and were challenged to create a computer game based in their own school! The game had to link to their school’s values and represent what the people and areas that made their school special. Throughout the day, students showed great Working in a Team, Problem Solving and Using Imagination skills, designing their game world and characters before thinking about how to code the movement of obstacles and objects in their game.

What they said:

  • “It has highlighted that they need to develop their teamwork which is why it is so great to actually have the opportunity to spend some time on it” – Teacher
  • “They’ve come up with some really lovely imaginative stuff, it links really nicely to the DT curriculum as well” – Teacher
  • “I really enjoyed looking at the school playground and thinking how we could make it into a cool platform game.” – Student
  • “Today has made me really think about my teamwork. I think we got better as we went along but I know what I can do to be better.” – Student

Thanks to everyone for such a great Challenge Day!
