Y6 have worked with Virgin Money this term to see if they could take a loan of £5 per person and create a small, successful business with it.
Each group developed an idea, researched it and sourced the materials and then wrote a presentation to win over the Virgin Money and Whickham Parochial “Dragons”. The dragons were quite tough, but every group was awarded their loan.
The businesses made their products and created their brands, and were ready and raring to go on Saturday at our Friends’ Summer Fayre. All the businesses were very popular and each one managed to make money, with an final combined profit of just over £321!
All proceeds went to our fantastic Friend’s as a big “Thank You” for our Leavers’ Hoodies. Well done to all concerned.
