The School:

Court Farm Primary School is in its 2nd year working with Enabling Enterprise, keen to support their children to develop the essential skills, broaden horizons and raise aspirations. Most recently, groups from upper Key Stage 2 have been out on Enabling Enterprise visits to Royal HaskoningDHV – an engineering and project management company – and to Aston University, and all classes are now preparing for their lesson time projects to run later this term. Today it was a chance for Year 4 students to showcase their skills in the special Operation Moonbase challenge.

The Challenge: Operation Moonbase

Over the course of the day, the 8 and 9 year olds 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 Essential Skills, particularly practising their Leading, Using Imagination and Listening Carefully skills. Teams needed to select a specialist crew to support them on their mission, design a new species of animal to benefit their new space age society, before finally creating a model of their own Utopian city to inspire others to travel with them to outer space!

What they said:

  • “The class have worked so well on this – the resources have been clear, easy to use – it’s really captured their imaginations. I’m impressed in the way they have actually got on together in these new teams – it’s been a challenge but some of them have raised their game. A really enjoyable day!” – Teacher
  • “I don’t always like working with others like this, but today I’ve really tried hard and it’s been good. We got lots of skill points!” – Student
  • “I love Enabling Enterprise work – I did it at my old school, so I’m really glad we get to do it here too. I was proud to get some Leadership points for my team today – it’s been fun!” – Student

Thanks to everyone for such a great Challenge Day!
