The School:

This is the first experience of Enabling Enterprise for Keys Meadow, having won the day thanks to their excellent entry from Owls class in the recent Global Entrepreneurship Week competition. Today’s challenge was a fantastic opportunity for students from Years 3-6 to put their Enterprise Skills to the test in an exciting business challenge.


The Challenge: Greetings Card Challenge

Students explored the world of enterprise by setting up and running their own greeting cards company. Over the course of the challenge, students were Working in a Team to manage a production line and sell a new range of greetings cards in the EE shop. In particular, teams had to use their Problem Solving skills to ensure that everyone in their team had contributed to final design and creation of their new greetings cards. As the clock ticked away, teams raced to outdo their competitors, sell the most cards and generate the biggest profit. In order to win over future customers, teams competed to deliver a convincing business pitch, before the final winners were decided.

What they said:

  • “I haven’t seen this class work together so well all year! They have been really focussed and supportive of each other all day. We’ve been doing mock SATS all week so this has been a really fantastic way for them to end the week on a high.” – Teacher
  • “Some of the groups in my class were not working that well in teams in the morning, but by the afternoon they really got the hang of the process of a production line and started to make a profit which gave their confidence a huge boost and showed them the power of teamwork.” – Teacher
  • “I’ve learnt that good leadership is about making sure that everyone knows what they need to do.” – Student
  • “You have to listen to each other and also support each other to stay positive. We’ve got a positivity manager in our team whose job it is to cheer people up so they can do their work properly.\” – Student

Thanks to everyone for such a great Challenge Day!
