The School:

Hawkesbury Primary is in their first year working with Enabling Enterprise. Previously, students took part in a competition trip to Cabot Circus Shopping Centre where they worked in a team on developing their essential skills. Today’s challenge was a fantastic opportunity for students from EYFS to Year Six to put their Enterprise 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 and create 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:

  • “The children have really enjoyed the practical element of each task. It’s been great for me to see them take on different roles in their teams, with some children who wouldn’t normally take on the leadership role showing great leadership skills.” – Teacher
  • “It’s been good for the children to not only use the skills, but to think about how they use them and name them.” – Teacher
  • “It’s been a really fun day. It’s definitely helped our communications skills as we worked in teams sharing our ideas and listening to each other. ” – Student
  • “We built a brilliant moon city. It was good to spend all day on the challenge! ” – Student

Thanks to everyone for such a great Challenge Day!
