The School:

Filton Avenue Primary School is in its second year working with Enabling Enterprise. Previously, students have been busy developing their Essential Enterprise Skills by taking part in the ‘Social Entrepreneur‘ Challenge Day last summer and Lesson Time Projects this year. Today’s challenge was a fantastic opportunity for students from Year 4 to put their Enterprise Skills to the test.


The Challenge: Future Transport

Over the course of the day, students 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. Teams applied their Problem Solving and Staying Positive skills through a series of challenges designed to put their skills to the test. At the end of the day, students tested each other’s designs and practised their presenting by Sharing Ideas in front of the class.

What they said:

  • “It has been great to have a whole day to focus on the skills. We’ve seen some good progress in problem solving and teamwork from the class.” – Teacher
  • “The children have been really engaged today. We’ve been really pleased to see how they’ve worked through problems in their team independently” – Teacher
  • “This has been the best day of my school life!” – Student
  • “I’ve really enjoyed working with different people. I like the teamwork. I don’t usually like problem solving, I usually just give up, but there are lots of people to help and we’ve been solving problems together.” – Student

Thanks to everyone for such a great Challenge Day!
