The School:

St Clement’s are in their first year working with Enabling Enterprise. In the upcoming year, students will be busy developing a set of eight Essential Skills with Lesson-Time Projects in class and a Business Trip to One.Manchester. Today’s challenge was a fantastic opportunity for students from Nursery to Year 6 to put their Essential 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:

  • “This is exactly the kind of thing our students need. By giving them experiences of teamwork and challenging tasks, they get the opportunity to struggle and keep pushing.” – Governor
  • “What a fantastic day. There’s one kid who I really thought would struggle with the change of routine, but he really shone and has really involved himself in everything.” – Teacher
  • “I loved working with everyone. We don’t normally work together because we argue but today we didn’t.” – Student
  • “My team were definitely the best. We were Aiming High and Staying Positive.” – Student

Thanks to everyone for such a great Challenge Day!
