Welcome back to school! we’ve got lots of new exciting activities in the pipeline for the new school year and some that are ready to go right now. The Primary Business Partnership team went back to school last week and completed their training in delivering the Contract to Cube-it session.
” I’ve seen this being delivered and the children really enjoyed the afternoon, it was amazing to watch the skills that developed during the activity. In addition to the areas we planned to explore the children also exploited their business opportunities and pushed the boundaries of the activity with real creativity and business acumen. There were some budding entrepreneurs in the classroom that day.” Melanie Wheatley, PBP.
If you’re interested in booking this session, it works for a class of 30, which is then split up into teams of about six. Ideally suited for year five and six the groups have to buy materials to build simple cubes, fix the cubes together to make simple models. They can then use colours to finish the design and sell the these to afford better materials required to make more valuable products. At the end of the session the winning group is the team who has managed to make the most money. It’s a great session promoting mathematical and business skills with a healthy mix of competition and collaboration with teams.
