The School: Wendell Park Primary

Wendell Park Primary is in their fourth year of working with Enabling Enterprise. Previously, students have been busy developing their Enterprise Skills by engaging in lesson time projects. Earlier this year, students from Years 4 and 6 went on a trip to Westfield shopping centre to apply their enterprise skills in a real workplace. Today’s challenge was a fantastic opportunity for students from Nursery to Year 6 to put their Enterprise Skills to the test again in a new and exciting challenge.

The Challenge: Level Up

Over the course of the day, students delved into the world of gaming and used their Working in a Team skills to design and code a new computer game set in their very own school! In a series of tasks based on eight Enterprise Skills, such as Using Imagination and Problem Solving, teams needed to reflect on their school values, research computer games and code a platforming game that showcased what makes their school great. The day culminated in EE Games Expo, where each team presented their exciting new game.

What they said:

  • “The students have used their imaginations in so many amazing ways today.” – Reception Teacher
  • “We used our imagination today by using what we know about computers, such as viruses and emails, to add obstacles to our level up game!” – Year 5 Student
  • “The main two skills we used were teamwork and using imagination. If your idea does not get chosen, you have to stay positive.” – Year 6 Student

Thanks to everyone for such a great Challenge Day!
