Enterprise

 

This half term we will be taking an exciting business venture as entrepreneurs! Our learning will take us on a journey to create our very own brand and marketing and then we will sell our products to the wider school community.

 

We will use our persuasive writing skills to convince people to buy our products by creating advertisements. In maths, we will focus on money including: adding, subtracting and giving change. Before selling our product, we will use the design and technology cycle: research, design, make and evaluate.

 

We will identify different job roles such as: market researchers, designers, scientists/engineers, sales people and accountants and link these to the skills that we learn.
