On Friday 24th March, Year Six successfully raise a staggering £505.45 for Comic Relief. The fundraiser was run as part of a Year 6 PSHE unit on entrepreneurship. Children learned about what an entrepreneur is and planned, budgeted and marketed this event as part of that unit of study. They worked in groups and came up with their own ideas about what they would like to sell. Each group was given a budget of £10 to spend, with which they purchased the materials to make their own goods to sell. We had two milkshake bars, popcorn stalls, cake stalls, a sweet stall and egg raffle, a homemade chocolate gift stall and a hot chocolate cup and marshmallow stall.
All the children worked extremely hard to make the morning a great success and we are exceptionally proud of their efforts. Mr Bettaney and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the Year Six parents for supporting us with this venture as we know it required a lot of time and organisation at home. We couldn’t have done it without your support and for this we are extremely grateful.
