Last week we also welcomed Young Enterprise who came to introduce the Tenner Challenge which the whole of Year 7 are going to be participating in during February and March. In teams they have to generate as much profit as possible within a month, starting with £10 initial investment
During the session they were introduced to basic business skills by playing a bead game. They had to buy raw materials (beads) and then produced jewellery and then sell the bracelets. Enterprise skills used during the day included leadership, negotiation, teamwork, creativity, time-management, and communication.
The feedback that we have received from the year group has been very positive. We wish all of year 7 good luck with their forthcoming challenge.
