Church Hill School
From the London Borough of Barnet, Church Hill School has been working with Enabling Enterprise since 2018 to develop a set of eight Essential Skills in their students. Their first experience was a visit to a top employer and they will also be applying and developing these skills across the whole school through Lesson-Time Projects and Challenge Days this year.
Over the course of the day, children had to work together in small teams to research, design, build and test a new form of transport for the future. They were set the challenge from Ronnie the Robot who had travelled back in time to explain what the world would be like many years in the future. Teams needed to be creative to solve problems and stay positive through a series of fast-paced challenges designed to stretch their essential skills. At the end of the day, students tested each other's designs and shared their super imaginative ideas in front of the class.
