Enterprise education is an essential part of the revised primary curriculum in Wales. A key purpose of every school’s curriculum is to support children to be enterprising, creative contributors, ready to play a full part in life and work.
These tried and tested Enterprise Troopers classroom activities have been updated to link with the requirements of the Curriculum for Wales so your pupils can develop an entrepreneurial mind-set. To help with curriculum planning, each learning activity has links, where appropriate, with:
- The Areas of Learning and Experience
- The revised National Literacy and Numeracy Framework
- The Digital Competence Framework
Many classroom activities provide opportunities for children to apply their entrepreneurial skills in exciting and practical ways. Taking part in the national Primary School Competition will help your pupils to become Enterprise Troopers and to:
- reflect on their own particular strengths, interests and aspirations;
- have a can-do attitude and the drive to make ideas happen;
- be skilled in getting on with people, influencing, negotiating and contributing to a team approach;
- be creative, innovative, and take imaginative approaches to problem solving.
Crucially your pupils will be able to describe how they have developed and used their entrepreneurship skills, and why these characteristics are important.
A central aim of the national competition is to encourage schools to recognise and build upon their existing good practice. The updated Enterprise Troopers learning activities and support resources are designed to complement the work you are already doing to encourage your pupils to behave in an entrepreneurial way.
They consist of
- 11 learning activities for lower primary pupils i.e. 3 to 7 year olds
- 12 learning activities for upper primary pupils i.e. 7 to 11 year olds with 8 supporting resources
