Chantry took part in our annual Enterprise Day on Wednesday 5th December facilitated by Carole Richards, Northumberland Education Business Partnership, part of Northumberland County Council.
The theme of the day was ‘Build a Business’ and with the help of over 30 local Business Ambassadors the pupils worked in small groups to plan, design and develop a business. The groups of pupils, who were all mixed, from Year 5 to Year 8 then had to present their business ideas to the rest of their class group for the chance to win the grand prize… a Terry’s Chocolate Orange!
The day was a huge success and all pupils were thoroughly engaged in the learning that was taking place. Cooperation, teamwork, resilience, creativity and achievement were all core skills that the pupils developed further throughout the day as they all worked collaboratively to ensure the end goal was met.
Pupils who took part in the event commented:
‘I really enjoyed the day and liked working with different types of people.’
‘It was good fun as we were learning but in a different way.’
‘I think my idea will sell for millions…will Alan Sugar be interested?’
