Enterprise Week at Charlton House
They chose a product or service to provide during fun day, carrying out customer research and creating a financial plan. After securing a loan from the bank of Mrs Owen the business process began!
The products and services were as varied and exciting as ever, ranging from Mexican Jellies to friendship bracelets and hand puppets. Children clearly put a great deal of effort into producing work which others would want to buy. They also had to market their products through posters, leaflets, a ‘Dragons Den’ style presentation and a TV advert which was recorded on the school’s camcorder.
Enterprise Week had several purposes: to teach children about money and running a business, to teach teamwork, to create a real purpose for Fun Day, and last but not least to have fun. We have included some of the week’s highlights below and we ask all parents to support the children’s businesses during Fun Day.
