IT WAS an industrious week for children of business as a village school held an enterprise week.

Children in all years at Woodford Halse Primary School put their business caps on last week as they created products to sell on Friday.

Each group created items during their enterprise week around the themes they have been studying.

There was jewellery and cards themed around dinosaurs, photo frames and tea light holders for the ‘lights, camera, action’ theatre theme, a recipe book, and clay pots and packaging from those looking at fair trade.

The week’s work was coordinated by Alison Crockford, the year five and six teacher and maths coordinator.

A spokesman for the school said: “During Enterprise Week the whole school has been doing work around their themes, and the items were sold after school on Friday.

“The ultimate aim is to make as much profit as possible.

“As well as creating the items, the children have been looking at money, giving change, profits, graphs and turning market research into customers.”
