Year 5 Make £5 Grow

Children in Year 5 recently took part in 'Make £5 Grow', a Virgin Money scheme that gives Primary School children the experience of starting a small business. Each child was given a loan of £5 which they could then use to make as much profit as possible. The programme gives pupils an insight into how business works and helps them to build skills for the future, such as teamworking, problem solving, leadership, money management and creativity.

Year 5 held a special event in the hall, inviting all of their family and friends to come and buy their goods, which consisted of a wide variety of arts, crafts, food and drink. The children were very creative with their ideas and showed great entrepreneurial spirit, well done everybody!
