Year 3 raised a total of £43.75 during our enterprise afternoon! The children decided to buy books and stationery. Each class now has a set of 8 'Diary of a Wimpy Kid' books and a stacking pencil each.

Enterprise Day Marketing Videos and Posters, by Mrs Harris

Date: 1st Feb 2024 @ 9:46pm

The children had a wonderful time during the preparation for Enterprise Day 2024!

Their entrepreneurial skills were certainly put to the test and they all did so well.

Modern life means our young people need to be resilient, innovative and not afraid to experiment - all important for entrepreneurs.  

We are using Enterprise Day to develop a range of skills in our pupils. These skills include:- team work, financial literacy, organising and planning, using initiative, negotiation, taking risks, creativity and innovation.

A key part of enterprise is the making of goods, followed by the marketing and selling of these goods. 

Take a look at our presentation / marketing videos and see what you like the look of 😊

Year 6, by Mrs Harris

Date: 5th Oct 2023 @ 10:06pm

Year 6 have been learning about refugees this morning. As a class we read the poem ‘Refugees’ by Brian Bilston. It was an interesting poem as when we read it from the bottom to the top it changed the meaning of the poem. The children enjoyed discussing the meaning of the poem. 

Some children performed the poem and we also reflected on what we had learnt and prayed for refugees around the world.
