The £1 coins have arrived!!

This afternoon Mrs Botterill, the school business manager, came to deliver the business loans to Year 5 for our ‘Grow a £’ project. She explained that it was an investment into their chosen ideas and for them to use to purchase necessary equipment to start up their business’. Some children decided to group together and combine their investments before ideating potential ideas.

We looked careful at what is meant by profit/ loss before explaining that the money raised will then be sent to WWF (which we have been learning about as part of our topic on Africa) Our year group target is £500 over 7 weeks, do you think we can do it? Even Mr Wainwright, Mrs Carter, Mrs Gresly and Miss Coade have their £1’s so the competition is on! Keep visiting our page to see how the project develops…
