Apprentice Week

15 to 19 June 2015

A challenge was set for the Year 6 pupils. Lord Sugar had invited us to market and sell a unique product or business idea throughout Apprentice Week.

In preparation for this week we participated in a Dragon's Den Workshop which helped us to improve our marketing and selling skills. Each group that participated received £5.00 to boost their business.

The stalls varied from cookies and cakes, to sports activities and sponge throwing!

There were eight groups in total; about six people in each group. In the group everyone had a role like team leader or accountant. In addition, the people who ran the sponge throwing stall also had a health and safety manager.

When the week finally came, everyone was given two free tokens and a chance to purchase additional tokens as well. To buy something from a stall, you had to use your given tokens.

All of the stalls were a huge success, and everybody together raised over £300! All through the week, sales were recorded and checked by the accountant, just so that the prices were accurate.

Overall it was a great week, and everyone had fun, (even the hardworking people behind the scenes!) All the money raised went to Cancer Research, so that they can hopefully find a new treatment for the people in need.

Congratulations to our winning team 'Tommy More Record Breakers' and thank you to all who helped to raise money during this special week.
