Woodhouse Primary School pupils cover Philippines flags with coins

Young entrepreneurs have been learning about the market-place at Woodhouse Primary School, Brighouse.

Pupils have been learning about financial responsibilities including saving and budgeting, credit and debit and value for money.

As a culmination of their work, classes have joined together and they have decided on items to make and sell to other pupils at the school ‘Christmas Marketplace’ in order to try and make a profit.

Items on sale included a Christmas Eve kit by reception, magic reindeer food by Year one, rock monsters by Year two, snowman soup by year three, jellybean bugs by year four, Christmas extravaganza by year five and Christmas tags and doorhangers by year six pupils.

A spokesman for the school said: “Children had great fun in making and selling their products. All classes made a profit to go towards extra activities in class.”

They also helped to raise more than £1,017 by covering 80 A3 copies of the flag of the Philippines with loose change they had brought from home.
