Year 6 Enterprise 'Make do and mend'

As part of the Year 6 topic for this half term, ‘Who had it better?’ the children have been comparing life now to that in the 1940’s. They have been learning about the differences in all aspects of life such as technology, toys, transport and houses.

In order to gain a better understanding of what Christmas was like during the war, the children made items out of unwanted clothes to sell for their Enterprise topic. They worked really hard on their sewing skills and created some fabulous, bespoke items! They also worked really hard in their company teams, succesfully taking on the different roles: general manager, finance director, sales manager, marketing director and chief purchaser.

Year 6 would like to thank all children and parents who supported them in their 'make do and mend' enterprise sale. We are proud to announce that the children managed to make a whopping £374.75 profit which they are now desperate to spend! We are looking into different trips which the whole of Year 6 could take part in using the profits. Well done to our individual company winners, B4U (Bags for you) who topped the profit list by making £68.51 profit as a team. Some of you may even be lucky enough to receive one of their bespoke items as a Christmas present! A huge thank you also to all our parents and grandparents who came in to support the children with their sewing during the topic, we couldn't have done it without you!
