24 highly-excited Year 6 Students recently joined us as our guests to take part in the first of many dynamic and memorable whole-day events which we have planned for local Year 5s and 6s this year – our very own Dragons Den style-show!
As all fans of BBC’s Dragons‘ Den know, this is the series in which budding entrepreneurs get just three minutes to pitch their business ideas to five multi-millionaires willing to invest their own money in to new products.
Working closely in small teams of 4, the year 6s were issued with a business brief by Mrs Glover and then had to design, market and pitch their food-based product to the line-up of Dragons, which consisted of senior staff and local business people who had come in to support the school.
The day was highly successful and enjoyable. As one Year 6 teacher observed “Everyone was made to feel welcome, a tour was even given. The task was presented well and explained and the presentations made were a success.”
Another vice-principal of a primary school involved said “The children came back having had an excellent day and were very excited in re-telling me the events! They had clearly developed and learnt new skills too.Thank you very much for organising this and providing the transport was very helpful to us. We look forward to the future events!”
