The School:

Hermitage Primary is in its first year working with Enabling Enterprise. They have shown their commitment to ensuring their students learn and develop a set of eight essential Enterprise Skills by taking part in a business trip to law firm Allen & Overy, and later in the year they will be running some exciting Lesson-Time Projects. To launch the programme in school, students from Year 1 and Year 2 took part in a Challenge Day that really put their skills to the test.

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, then design a new species of animal to benefit society before finally creating a model of their own dream city. This was followed by 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:

  • “The day was so different to what we usually do in class and the kids absolutely loved it!” – Teacher
  • “I can’t wait to do more of this with my students over the year.” – Teacher
  • “Today has been so much fun – I love working in a team!” – Student
  • “Our animal is called Funky Monkey and everyone in the team put their ideas into it!” – Student

Thanks to everyone for such a great Challenge Day!
