Year 6 have been taking part in the Fiver Challenge. Each child has been given £5 to set up a small business.
Each week there is a challenge to complete to help them develop their businesses.
This week the children had to create a logo and business plan. They then had to put together a sales pitch where they explained what their business is and how much profit they expect to make.

Monday (16.05.16) - Portsmouth (HMS Victory) and ferry to the Isle of Wight
We have had a wonderful day exploring HMS Victory and travelling by ferry to the Isle of Wight. The weather has been brilliant so we managed a visit to the beach in the evening after dinner.
Tuesday (17.05.16) - Fort Victoria and The Needles
Another fantastic day in the sunshine. All children thoroughly enjoyed the boat trip around The Needles and seeing the coloured sands in the rocks.
This evening we visited the local theatre for a great show of 'Fangtastic'. Lots of singing and dancing, especially by the teachers!
Wednesday (18.05.16) - Bembridge Lifeboat Station and Robin Hill Country Park
A brilliant start to the day at the lifeboat station where the children learnt a lot about coastal safety. Later a trip to the wonderful Robin Hill Country Park where the sun shone and we managed many rides on the Collosus Pirate Ship and trips to the 4D Cinema.
Thursday (19.05.16) - Fossil Hunting and Roman Villa
An interesting morning spent fossil hunting. Many children are now in possession of Fools Gold and crystals that they found themselves on the beach. We also visited a Roman Villa where we saw many remains of roman buildings and artefacts.
