Year 6 take on the Fiver Challenge
We are very excited in year six this week as the National Fiver challenge has come to town. Children worked in groups of between 3-6 and were each pledged £5 to start their own business.
They were challenged to make as much profit as possible and to enter weekly competitions which included a logo design and a one minute advert. The challenge ran until the 30th of June.
Impressive ideas have were not in short supply and the Children sold their wares at three markets on Wednesday afternoons through June. One group even set about washing cars!
Diana from Year 6 has written this report for us:
Hi, Diana here! Reporting for Shakespeare News all about the Fiver Challenge.
The fiver challenge is a challenge set for pupils like me. This challenge starts with everyone having £5 and being put in a group. In your group you find a way to make money using the fiver.
My group was called the Slime Daisies. We made coloured slime to sell. The best bit was when I made the slime. It was hard at first. The difficult part was making sure things were organised – sometimes we weren’t quite ready. I have learned a lot from this challenge, especially about how hard it is to make money when we are older.
