  • We have been learning about finding change, linking in with Enterprise week and preparing them for selling our products on the stall. 
  • For Enterprise week we have been hard at work deciding on a product that we would like to create, doing market research to find out what might sell the best, using pricing information to work out how much to charge per item in order to make the best profit, creating posters and adverts to market our products and creating the product itself! 
  • We have been working hard at using our sewing skills to make pouches. There were lots of skills practiced including stitches, needle threading, attaching poppers, resilience and perseverance!
