Y3’s First Enterprise Event

During the first half of the spring term, Year 3 were busily preparing for their first ever Enterprise event. You can see all the photos in the gallery here

As part of the project, they had to conduct research in to the most popular type of chocolate and ingredients, design and make advertising materials and learn about how a successful business is run. Armed with a £5 business loan from Mrs Mendieta, each group prepared a shopping list of materials and made their own chocolates. To add a competitive element, Mrs Almasri also made her own business! The children learnt about how to give the correct change to a customer and each group made a profit.

Well done to the “Shadow” business who made over £8 in profit! We are pleased to announce that we raised over £30 to be donated to a charity of our choice. Using our right to say what we think, the children suggested possible charities and voted; the most popular charity being Save the Children. We are delighted to be able to donate our profit to help them to help other children around the world who are less fortunate than ourselves.

Well done Year 3!
