Next week the children will be participating in our Enterprise week. Throughout the week the children will be responsible for designing, making, producing, advertising and selling a product of their choice in order to raise funds for their class. The children will be applying their numeracy skills in a range of ways as they budget, plan, design and sell their product. We believe that by creating authentic learning experiences and by children having the opportunity to apply their skills in real life contexts really solidifies their learning.
This week each class has been researching different products and have sent representatives to me to ‘pitch’ their idea and request initial funds. The children are expected to make a profit from the products that they sell in order to purchase specific resources for their class, however, as it is Children in Need next week, we are also asking the children to donate 10% of their profit to Children in Need.
The children will be split into various teams and roles and will certainly be developing their entrepreneurial skills.
On Friday 16th November at 3pm we will be holding our Market. Parents and grandparents are invited to attend and support this event. If you wish your child to accompany you to the sale, please inform the school in the first instance and then collect your child from the plaza at 2:50pm
