The School:

Christchurch CE Primary is in their 1st year working with Enabling Enterprise. Today’s challenge was a fantastic opportunity for students from Early Years to Year 6 to put their Enterprise Skills to the test.

The Challenge: Creative Spaces

Over the course of the day, students were Working in a Team to become architects and builders. Their task was to design and build a new community arts centre for their local area, taking inspiration from what they already knew and by thinking about ways to incorporate nature into their building. In particular, students were Using Imagination and Problem Solving to decide where to build their space and what materials to use. The project will culminate with teams Sharing Ideas for their new creative spaces and pitching for potential planning permission, using a model of their proposed building they made from recycled materials.

What they said:

  • “It’s nice to see them working in groups and taking the time to listen to each other’s ideas” – Teacher
  • “I think this will be good for different students in different ways, for some it will help in making sure they support others” – Teacher
  • “It’s important to share your ideas because then you feel happy and you know that they have thought about what you want” – Student
  • “We found that voting for things doesn’t always work but sometimes you have to stop and listen to what other people want and also try to persuade them that your idea is the best” – Student

Thanks to everyone for such a great Challenge Day!
