Year 5 Exit Point: Mini-Enterprise Competition

On Tuesday morning this week, Year 5 children took part in the first-ever BVIS Primary School ‘Mini-Enterprise’ competition. This exciting challenge required teams of 5-6 children to take on the roles of important jobs in a business, including a CEO, designer, accountant, purchasing manager, sales director and quality control expert. The children then, taking on their specific roles, had to work together to produce a product and an accompanying brochure. In this case it was a mini version of a boat and a brochure advertising their boat trip.

Once their prototype boat was completed, the sales director then had to pitch their boat and brochure to one of buyers who would either make a bid or suggest improvements. Once improvements were made, the product was then ready for the assembly line, so that they could start making and selling their products and buying any additional equipment they needed. The winning team was the team that had managed to collaborate well enough to make the most profit. Congratulations on this occasion to Minh Phuong’s team, who managed to make a profit of $50.

As always, these activities take a great deal of hard work and preparation, so well done to Mr Daniel and the Year 5 team for organising such a great learning opportunity for the children. I look forward to seeing many other mini-enterprise challenges in the future.

Mr Oliver Sargent
Assistant Head of Primary
