The School:

Oasis Academy Warndon is in their first year working with Enabling Enterprise. Students from Year 5 took part in a workplace visit during the Autumn term and impressed with their teamwork and creativity. Today, the whole school were keen to utilise their essential skills by taking part in an exciting Enterprise Challenge Day.


The Challenge: Operation Moonbase

Over the course of the day, students used their Working in a Team skills to establish a new society on a distant moon called Utopia. A series of challenges required teams to use their Enterprise Skills, particularly practising their Problem Solving, Using Imagination and Listening Carefully. Teams needed to select a crew to support them on their mission, design a new species of animal to benefit their new society before finally creating a model of their own dream city. The day culminated in a series of persuasive pitches at the Intergalactic Trade Fair which gave each team the opportunity to show off their fantastic ideas.


What they said:

  • “I really liked the pace of the day – the children were totally engaged and it’s good to see them having to solve problems for themselves…a really creative, thought provoking day” – Teacher
  • “I’ve used my imagination loads today and shared ideas with my team. I’d love to go to outer space and visit our Moonbases for real!” – Student
  • “What a fabulous day! The activities were easy to follow, the resources were engaging and interactive and most importantly the children absolutely loved it. Can’t rave about it more!” – Teacher
  • “This is fun! My team have had to listen to each other and give each other a chance to speak! I think we’ve really improved our teamwork.” – Student

Thanks to everyone for such a great Challenge Day!
