Aiden, Liam, Jaspriya , Adaina, Ellie, Melike, Charlotte, Hannah, Amelia and Anthony

The Entrepreneur Team has been set up to find ways of making profit for different charities supported by the school. Children have conducted some simple market research to establish things that they would like to buy for under a £1. The team have focused on small items that can often be used in the classroom to support their learning such as rubbers, pencils and pens. Other items that will be sold that can be used at playtimes such as mini-footballs and skipping ropes which encourage healthy social games.

The team have used their mathematical skills to work out how to make a small profit on a range of items. As well as putting these skills into   practise, whilst operating the shop at break times. Taking part in the   EntrepreneurTeam has also developed their self-confidence in dealing with different situations and improved their ability to work with other children from different year groups.

The team used their mathematical skills to work out how to make a small profit on a range of items and put these skills into practise whilst operating the shop at break times. Taking part in the Entrepreneur Team also developed their self-confidence in dealing with different situations and improved their ability to work with other children from different year groups. Their maths skills were also kept sharp with plenty of adding and subtracting!

Each Year group had a turn at spending money on separate occasions and really seemed to enjoy buying a range of items. There was great demand for the fluorescent flashing ducks and bears, the sponge footballs and the dice rubbers! It was great to see children having so much fun at playtimes and lunchtimes with some of the different toys they had bought from the shop.
