Geoffrey Field Infant School
Based in Reading and part of the Whitley Excellence Cluster (WEC), Geoffrey Field Infant School have been working with Enabling Enterprise since 2018. As a large Infant school situated within a diverse community, the school aims to promote the moral, spiritual, physical and cultural development of all children.
Today’s challenge was a fantastic opportunity for students from Nursery through to Year 2 to explore how they use their Essential Skills in an exciting challenge that stretched their Creativity, Teamwork and Aiming High.
Students explored the world of enterprise by setting up and running their own greeting cards company. Over the course of the challenge, Reading's newest design companies worked in a team to share ideas and create initial designs for greetings cards, following their chosen theme.
With the final design chosen upon, students showed great teamwork to support each other and even set up a production line to create a new range of greetings cards. Using their 'budget' of tokens, they bought resources from the EE shop and set about producing cards, using their Problem Solving skills to ensure that everyone in their team had contributed to final design and creation of their new greetings cards.
As the clock ticked away, teams raced to get their cards finished on time, and to a high standard. Aiming High was particularly important, with many of the cards now being sold within the school to Geoffrey Field parents, the companies' newest customers!
