The School:

Wohl Ilford Jewish Primary School is in their 1st year working with Enabling Enterprise. Today’s challenge was a fantastic opportunity to launch the school’s enterprise programme. Later in the year, classes will explore their Lesson Time Projects but today, teams from Early Years to Year 6 put their Enterprise Skills to the test in day unlike any other!


The Challenge: Future Transport

Over the course of the day, students were Working in a Team to research, design, build and test a new form of transport for the future. They were set the challenge from Ronnie the Robot who’d travelled back in time to explain what the world would be like many years in the future. Teams applied their Problem Solving and Staying Positive skill through a series of challenges designed to put their skills to the test. At the end of the day, students tested each others’ designs and practised their presenting by Sharing Ideas in front of the class.

What they said:

  • “It’s been really brilliant and the students are already thinking about how they weren’t listening to each other in the morning and reflecting on how much better they are working now, in just a few hours you can see the difference” – Teacher
  • “It’s so important that they understand the value of working in a team and that’s what we need to teach them – that’s life isn’t it, working with others to achieve something” – Teacher
  • “I don’t think we worked very well together earlier because we weren’t even taking turns to speak but then we tried really hard to listen carefully to everyone’s ideas and it looks great!” – Student
  • “This would have taken hours and hours if we had to do it by ourselves but we got it all done and everyone had a job” – Student

Thanks to everyone for such a great Challenge Day!
