The School:

Redhill Primary School is in their second year working with Enabling Enterprise. Students have been busy developing their Enterprise Skills by creating a design for a new development on a brownfield site at LMJV. Today’s challenge was a fantastic opportunity for students from Year R to Year 6 to put their Enterprise Skills to the test.


The Challenge: Future Transport

Over the course of the day, teams were Working in a Team to research, design, build and test a new form of transport for the future. They were set the challenge from Ronnie the Robot who’d travelled back in time to explain what the world would be like many years in the future. Students applied their Problem Solving and Staying Positive skills through a series of fast paced challenges. At the end of the day, eager teams tested each other’s’ designs and practised their presenting by Sharing Ideas with increasing confidence in front of their classes.

What they said:

  • “The children are now confident in the language of Enabling Enterprise’s essential skills and spoke confidently about their futuristic transport models…the day really allowed them to develop their creativity and problem solving skills. A fabulous day!” – Teacher
  • “All in all, super outcomes across the school. A most enjoyable day for staff and children alike. We now look forward to embedding the skills in the wider curriculum.” – Teacher
  • “I think we’ve aimed high to solve problems in our team. It’s been fun to share our ideas and build our vehicle. I’d like to drive it!” – Student
  • “Next time I will think about my leading skills. Being a good leader isn’t about bossing the team about!” – Student

Thanks to everyone for such a great Enterprise Challenge Day!
