Our Young Enterprisers….!
What a fantastic team I have here! Due to unfortunate circumstance I was only able to work with the fabulous St Paulinus and Rift House for part of today but my wonderful team led by Gabriella took the reins wonderfully. The children probably had a better day because of it!
The theme was enterprise and as usual our focus for upper KS1 is to give children opportunities to think about how other people think. Designing a product for a specific audience is our way in. So today, after a few warm up tasks they designed Christmas biscuits and cakes for people that they know. Yes it was an edible glitter fest once the designs were created as they children busied themselves making their designs into real products. These are some of the images from today:
As you can see, the level of engagement, on task commitment and pride in their work was plain to see. I think some of their designs could easily grace the shelves of any of our local bakeries!
Unfortunately Rift House had to leave a little early to get back to school on time but St Paulinus then had time to showcase their work to camera. Well done to everyone today, it was a real treat to come back at the end and see how much you had all achieved.
