We feel enterprise education is an important part of learning in schools. It encourages an enterprising, ‘can do’ attitude and makes connections between school events/activities and ‘real life’. It is relevant to life beyond the classroom. We are encouraging the children to take complete ownership of enterprise from projects from start to finish, thinking about costings, profit, marketing and lots more.
For the Christmas Market, classes produced items to sell on market stalls and an activity for visitors to participate in.
In March 2016 the children produced artwork including paintings, sculptures, natural collages. They then presented these to parents and other visitors as part of Scarcliffe Primary School's Art Exhibition. Some of our artwork we also be put on display in Scarcliffe Church during Scarcliffe's Flower Festival (10tth-12th June). As well as producing fantastic artwork each class tried to incorporate an element of enterprise for the event. Class 1 made and sold refreshments, Class 2 designed some marketing posters to persuade people to come to the exhibition, Class 3 collected admissions donations and Class 4 ran a silent auction for a piece of art on canvas produced by each class.
