  • Enterprise Year 5

    8th January 2014

    We are really proud of Year 5 who managed to raise over £80 at the Christmas market, through running their own enterprise stall.

    The children made and sold pottery Christmas decorations. They also made up some games and Evie and her Grandmother made a cake that we cut up and sold.

    The class have decided to buy some new books and games with some of the money and then they have decided to save the rest, so they can add more money to their funds in future,

    Well done Year 5!
