The School:

Chesterton is in their third year working with Enabling Enterprise. Previously, students have been busy developing their Enterprise Skills by travelling to a distant moon and setting up a new society and piecing together clues to catch the Sugar Snatcher. Today’s challenge was a fantastic opportunity for students from EYFS to Year 4 to put their Enterprise Skills to the test in a futuristic challenge.


The Challenge: Future Transport

Today was an extra special day for the students of Chesterton. After being introduced to the challenges and obstacles with travelling around in the future during an assembly, they were then informed that a car from the future had arrived in the playground.
The students, who were all dressed in futuristic clothing, walked into the playground, excited to see this futuristic vehicle, and they were not disappointed. Outside was a car from the year 3030 which could sing and dance! The students watched as they were treated to a full performance from this futuristic Tesla car. This not only excited them by giving them a taste of the future, but it inspired them to come up with their own futuristic designs.
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 skills 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 was fantastic seeing our EYFS children get stuck in and really collaborate together.” – EYFS Teacher
  • “I’m so impressed with the imagination of these kids. I can really see how they have thought outside of the box and pushed themselves.” – Teacher KS1
  • “I think I’ve been a great leader today because when people in my team have been sad, I encouraged them and bought them together.” – Student KS2
  • “Our team had lots of ideas and we didn’t always agree so we voted or put our ideas together.” – Student KS2

Thanks to everyone for such a great Challenge Day!
