The School: Gifford Primary School

Gifford Primary in Ealing is in their second year of working with Enabling Enterprise. Today’s challenge was a fantastic opportunity for students in Year 5 to put their Enterprise Skills to the test!

Last year, the Year 5 students completed the ‘Making News’ lesson-time project, before completing the ‘Day in Politics’ Challenge Day.

The Challenge: Level Up!

Over the course of the day, students delved into the world of gaming whilst Working in a Team to design and code a new computer game, set in their very own school! Throughout the day, the students used all eight of the enterprise skills; reflecting on their school values and Using their Imagination to create a platform game that showcases what makes their school great.

The Year 5 students showed Leadership and Using Imagination as their chose locations and mood for their games. Their Problem Solving skills were tested as they created their game code, before the classes Shared Ideas as they presented their gaming project to their audience. The day culminated with all of the Year 5 students back in the main hall, to share their game worlds and reflect on the skills they had used throughout the day.

What they said:

  • “Our team’s main focus was on Working as a Team and Listening Carefully to each other. It wasn’t always easy, especially when we all wanted to share our ideas.” – Student
  • “They’ve taken away the skills that are needed for life after school. Who knows, there may be a games designer here today!” – Teacher
  • “Are we doing this tomorrow? I really want to carry on working with my team and creating my new game code!” – Student

Thanks to everyone for such a great Challenge Day!
