The School: Coppermill Primary

Saturn, Meteor and Moon classes (years 4 & 5) from Coppermill Primary in Waltham had an out of this world experience on their Moonbase Challenge Day. This was the first Enabling Enterprise experience for these particular children and it certainly blasted off with a bang!

The Challenge: Moonbase Challenge Day

The children faced a series of challenges designed to test their team working skills, imagination, ability to stay positive and share their ideas. Tasked with coming up with a plan for a new civilisation on a distant moon to save mankind, the teams certainly rose to the challenge and showed an exceptional ability to problem solve and stay positive. Each team took on the role of manager, designer, architect, builder and advertising executive, learning all about the various skills needed in these jobs along the way.

The Results:

It was fantastic to see the teams working so well together, sharing their ideas and helping each other to finish the tasks on time. The model cities they produced were particularly impressive and great care and attention was paid to every detail, even the insides of the buildings.

What they said:

  • “The children have been so engaged throughout the whole day. It’s been great to see the children who are normally the quiet ones come out of their shells. It’s really helped with their confidence” – Teacher, Coppermill Primary
  • “We’ve learnt that it’s good to work in teams. You can do anything if you try. I’m most proud of my advert because at first it was hard but I didn’t give up” – Student, Coppermill Primary

Well done to everyone who was involved.
