The School:

South Rise Primary School is in its second year of working with Enabling Enterprise. Last year, students in Years 2 and 4 took part in the ‘Crime Scene’ Challenge, a dropdown day in which they became police detectives and applied their Essential Skills to solve a crime. Today’s challenge was a fantastic opportunity for students from Years 1 and 2 to put their Essential Skills to the test.

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 the eight Essential Skills, such as Using Imagination and Problem Solving, teams needed to research their school, research computer games and code a platforming game that showcased what makes their school great. The day culminated in an EE Games Expo, where each team presented their exciting new game.

What they said:

  • “It’s so interesting seeing how they work together and which children find it more difficult to work together. It’s been a good learning curve for them.” – Teacher
  • “I’m really surprised with how well my class have worked together. They’ve loved it!” – Teacher
  • “I’ve made a character based on my teacher. I’ve made it look like a computer character by drawing it on squares.” – Student
  • “If we can’t decide whose idea to choose, we will take it in turns to use each other’s ideas.” – Student

Thanks to everyone for such a great Challenge Day!
