For the first time, Year 4 participated in a five week Young Enterprise programme called Our Community. We were visited by Shirley each week and together we explored the difference between needs and wants in the community, jobs in the community and how to spend money in our community. Our favourite part was when we got to design our own town - we were given a budget of £100 and a price list of how much different buildings cost. We had to work out the area each building would use by counting squares. We used lots of maths and thinking skills and had to work as a team for this project!
Following this, Shirley gave each of us a job in the community. We were happy when we got our wages, but didn't like it when Shirley came back to collect tax!
