Enterprise week

To help promote skills such as team work, creativity, innovation, perseverance and positivity we host an Enterprise week every year.

During the week children and teachers are ‘off timetable’ as they begin to work on a shared project as a class. All year groups are involved from Foundation Stage to Year 6.

Each class sells a product or service. Examples include:

  • A pizzera
  • A cafe
  • A bakery
  • A Spa Experience
  • A Tattoo Parlour
  • A Nail Salon
  • A Garden Centre
  • A Fitness and Sports Shop
  • A Haunted House Experience
  • A Green Screen Photo Shoot
  • A Sweet & Chocolate Store
  • A Hair Dressers
  • A Book Store

Throughtout the week the children complete a variety of lessons including;

  • Maths- units of money, finding the change and profits
  • Literacy – adverts and persuasive writing
  • Science – using the right materials
  • DT – planning, designing and evaluating your product
  • Art – package and product design
  • Drama – sales pitch for assessmbly
  • Reading – creating product information and sharing it
  • Communication and social skills – how to talk to customers
  • School rules- respecting each other and working as a team
