| Year 6
As part of the whole school Enterprise Week, pupils in Year 6 were keen to look at providing a service for their customer, rather than making and selling goods.
They agreed on entertainment as a focus and their suggestions for various activities lent themselves well to the idea of them running a range of funfair-type stalls and inviting all the other year groups to spend some time playing the activities.
After working in teams to finalise their ideas and researching the necessary resources to run their stall, they set out a group business plan.
One member of the team then had to pitch their business plan to the rest of the year group, to persuade them that the idea was viable and could make a profit. Questions and answers flowed, with the children very keen to ensure that game play was fair for those of all ages, that there would be sufficient and attractive prices and that the cost of each activity was reasonable for the entertainment and potential prize associated with it.
Once all the plans were agreed, the groups began work on their advertising and marketing, considering how best to attract customers and provide for varying ages. It was wonderful to see the flexibility of thinking within groups and their resilience as initial ideas were modified and refined to fall within the given budget and adapt to potential demand.
We are sure that all members of Year 6 would now be able to give any of the Dragons’ Den applicants some stiff competition for the attention of the Dragons!
