The School: Fossdene Primary School

Fossdene Primary School is in their third year of working with Enabling Enterprise. Previously, students have been busy developing their Enterprise Skills by completing lesson time projects in Autumn term. Year 6 even had the chance to visit two real life law firms in the City. Today’s challenge was a fantastic opportunity for students from Nursery to Year 6 to put their Enterprise 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. 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:

  • “The teamwork from this class today has been phenomenal. I think the fact that all the kids were always involved in every decision and every task really helped with that; it kept the group working together.” – Teacher
  • “We’re proud of our team because we have shared ideas and then actually used other people’s ideas and not just our own.” – Student
  • “I think our team would be good in space because we never give up and always do our best.” – Student

Thanks to everyone for such a great Challenge Day!
