Skills Builder Day at Hogarths, Kidderminster

Farlow C of E Primary School and Kinlet C of E Primary School visited Hogarths, Kidderminster as part of the Enabling Enterprise.


The teams spent the first part of the challenge conducting some crucial research by interviewing volunteers about their roles, responsibilities and the skills they use in their day-to-day jobs.  They then went on an exciting tour which sparked their imagination for their project: to plan an engaging event, needing to consider a theme, entertainment, food and decoration.  This put their Using Imagination and Sharing Ideas skills to the test as teams were challenged to create a new and original event tailored to their hosts.  Throughout the challenge, students benefited from expert advice from the team of volunteers and there was a healthy level of competition between teams, who were all Aiming High.  With a wide range of themes, it was clear the enterprising teams had used their listening skills and their research conducted on the tour.  The day culminated with the learners pitching their event plans to a panel of volunteer judges who had a very tough job picking a winning team.
