This week has been 'Entrepreneurial Week'in school.
Our task was to design and create Christmas products to be sold to parents and carers on Thursday 7th December.
We spent Monday to Wednesday designing and making our products and adverts. We made 'Reindeer poop', and 'Do you want to build a snowman?' bags. On Thursday morning we set up our stall. A huge thank you to everyone who came along to support us!
Our maths work was focussed on costings. We learned to recognise coins (1p, 2p, 5p and 10p). We found different ways to pay for items up to 10p using coins.
