English Martyrs' Catholic Primary School
Located in Sparkhill, Birmingham, English Martyrs' Catholic Primary School have been working with Enabling Enterprise since 2014, and are keen to ensure children across the school have opportunities to work creatively and collaboratively whilst using their essential skills. Today's enterprising challenge was a great chance for everyone to be focusing on developing their 'skills'.
The day started with each class being represented in the Olympics-style Opening Ceremony. Over the course of the day, students used their Teamwork skills to design a brand-new sport that promoted a sense of community. By looking at current, popular sports, the learners developed an understanding of how surfaces, equipment and people affect gameplay. Throughout the day, they also considered how sports can not only challenge a players physical ability but also put their essential skills to the test, such as Aiming High and Staying Positive.
At the end of the day each team used their Presenting skills to share their new sport to the rest of their class, who then voted on the best idea.
