Why did we go there?
Elizabeth Woodville invited us to study the world of enterprise and to develop our skills. These skills were: Communication. Innovation. Independence. Determination. Perseverance. Confidence, and collaboration.
What happened there?
To start of the day, we met 4 different schools at Elizabeth Woodville including them as 5. We had a short intriguing assembly about some famous people and how did they earned all of their money. Then us schools in our groups of 5 had a simple logo quiz which had 57 logos. After that all the schools which were merged together started a challenge of creating and selling origami. Also, we had £500 to start with to spend on paper then collect our profit of our origami and made it the correct shape and size (the swan was easy according to Kasey and the heart was easy according to Kevin). The stalls (the shop and the buyers) closed after an amount of time then re-opened and the prices were altered. There was a advanced book for hearts and swans. After all our hard work with our leaders we all had a rest and then restarted with our origami.The prices for the paper were £20 to £100 after they increased. As well as that all the costumers increased of how much they was going to sell it for from £40 to £200.
What did we learn?
Year 5 thought that we will always need a team spirit to support our own intelligent ideas. As well as that, all our knowledge for team work and innovation. Overall, it was a great day for learning as we all analysed the skills we used (which was a lot).
