The big 6/13 skills
Enterprise at Gillshill Primary is an integral part of the curriculum. Our pupils use their initiative and take the overall lead in many ways, from organising school events to raising money for charity. Enterprise education equips pupils with a set of practical and transferrable skills, which can be applied to all areas of life, and prepares our pupils for the challenges that lie ahead.
Our enterprise skills are interwoven into many of the core and foundation subjects across both key stages. The enterprise skills which are referred to in lessons are:
Key Stage 1
(Big 6 Enterprise skills)
Key Stage 2
(Big 13 Enterprise skills)
Tim and Tom the Team Work Twins
Pupils in Key Stage 2 have the opportunity to apply their knowledge of the Big 13 skills by participating in enterprising events such as:
· Make £5 Blossom
· Badgers Sett Challenge
· Keepmoat Construction days
· Industry Day
· Christmas Craft Fayre
These events allow our pupils to understand the importance of each skill and understand that these can be beneficial in terms of thinking about their job roles in the near future. Furthermore, the Big 13 enterprise skills allow our pupils to be resilient in terms of their mindset as they build on their prior knowledge and develop in confidence.
