During the past nine weeks, Year 6 have had the opportunity to create and design our own mini businesses. Sian and Louise, from Stride, helped us through this process by teaching us the key information about how to run a successful business. We learnt how to calculate income and profit efficiently in a memorable and easy way.

When we had successfully created all our projects, we pitched our ideas to a panel of judges in something called a ‘perfect pitch.’ Our team, Tropical Paradise, won the perfect pitch and also happened to be the most profitable business with an amazing £157.00 profit. We each received chocolate coins, a recyclable pen and notebook, a certificate and even a £5.00 note to help our business further, or to treat ourselves for our win. We would like to thank FOSC for making this initiative possible and we are excited to give the combined profit of £450.87 from all of the teams to our school charities – Amantani and Honeypot.
