The School:

Hannah More is in their first year working with Enabling Enterprise. Previously, students have been busy developing their Enterprise Skills by taking part in a trip to JLL and Cabot Circus. Today’s challenge was a fantastic opportunity for students from Year 5 to Year 6 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 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:

  • “It’s been nice to see the children collaborate with children they don’t normally work with and to really listen to each other’s ideas. There’s been something for everyone across the day, from using maths to building models. Everyone can contribute and they all feel their ideas are valued.” – Teacher
  • “The children respond well to pace and this day has been really fast paced, moving from one challenge to another. The pace really helps support classroom behaviour and their engagement.” – Teacher
  • “It was a really creative day. It was great to work in a team to work out what we had to do and to work together to build a city. It was fun working with people we don’t normally work with.”- Student
  • “Today was a really fun lesson. Can we do it again next month?” – Student

Thanks to everyone for such a great Challenge Day!
