Last Friday, at lunchtime, Primary 6 had a Friendship Fair. This was to celebrate the end of a wonderful session and to look forward to moving on to our new classes.
The P6 enterprise groups set up stalls in the playground to sell their products. There were notebooks, keychains, cupcakes, lavender bags, pom pom pals, t-shirts and lots more. There was even a busker! We invited some of the older girls to come to our fair and to buy our things.
We had been making these products for a few weeks as part of our Virgin Money enterprise project. Everyone in Primary 6 was given £5 and we had to try and use this money to make a product and make a profit. The fair was very noisy and we were nervous in case nobody bought our products. In the end, our stall sold out - but not everybody's did!
In our groups, we counted all the money and then we had to work out whether or not we had made a profit. A profit is when you make more money than you spend. ¾ of our profits will go to NSPCC. It was such fun and we learnt a lot about being entrepreneurs and how to work as part of a team.
