Enterprise activity for Year 5

Enterprise_5I5H & 5I have been taking part in an enterprise activity led by Business Ambassador, Carole Richards. Three Business Ambassadors supported the session, two of the Ambassadors were from NCC and one was from Active Northumberland.

Students worked in teams of 6 to design and manufacture products and agreed their roles within each company group. Students experienced being a Sales Executive, General Manager, Buyer, Production Worker, Accountant or Quality Controller.

All students developed their leadership, decision-making, negotiating, teamwork and listening skills during the session as well as learning about the world of work and employability.

7W & 7S Enterprise

7S and 7W took part in an enterprise workshop on Friday morning. Students had the opportunity to work with Carole Richards, Business Ambassador for Northumberland County Council. The students also worked with six other Business Ambassadors that volunteered to take part in the session.

We were delighted to find out that two of the Ambassadors were parents of students that currently go to Chantry Middle School; Mr Crumplin from BRIC and Mrs Cuthbertson from Proctor & Gamble (P&G). The other four Business Ambassadors were both from NCC, Sainsbury’s, Active Northumberland and Tyne Met College.

Students found out about the skills and attributes of a variety of roles within a company and calculated the profit for their group using their own records of expenditure and revenue of their own company. The students quickly realised the need for quality control in terms of their production and developed their negotiating skills when buying and selling stock.

Well done to “Duck N Stool Ducks” from 7W that were the overall winners. Members of the winning team were:7W enterprise winners
