The first half of the Summer Term finished on a high for Year 5 & 6. Working in groups of between 1 and 5, they organised an Enterprise Fair for the younger pupils in the school.
Each group was given a loan of £10 from the PTA with which to purchase ingredients, materials, prizes, etc. They then set up and advertised their stalls on a warm and sunny Thursday afternoon. The customers flocked in and the children were delighted to learn that, collectively, they raised £323.14 for PTA funds. The next task is to decide how this money should be spent!
Every team made a profit but what made the staff most proud were the positive comments from parents of the younger pupils, congratulating the Year 5 & 6s on the way they spoke to the younger children. The staff felt very proud that this was recognised.
A special mention to Emily in Year 6 who won the prize for the most enterprising stall. It wasn’t that she raised the most money, but that she worked independently, it was all her own idea and no food was involved at all!! Well done.
