The School:

St. Mary’s Priory are in their fourth year of working with Enabling Enterprise. Previously, students have been busy developing their Enterprise Skills by designing their own sport http://enablingenterprise.org/archives/20790 and designing and constructing their own community art centre. http://enablingenterprise.org/archives/18650 Today’s challenge was a fantastic opportunity for students from EYFS to Year 6 to put their Enterprise Skills to the test.


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:

  • “They have really embraced the theme of computer games and coding. There are children who have really surprised me today.” – Teacher KS2
  • “This has engaged some children who usually struggle with teamwork as it relates to their world so much. They are so engaged.” – Teacher KS2
  • “Our team has been Using Imagination to come up with a cool game! It’s in the dinner hall and we have to collect gems and defeat the dinner lady!” – Student KS1
  • “Our game is a racing plane game. You have to eat lots of pizza to go faster!” – Student EYFS

Thanks to everyone for such a great Challenge Day!
