Young entrepreneurs created gifts and decorations as part of their Christmas fair.

Pupils from Field Lane Primary School, Rastrick, welcomed families as youngsters from each class set up their stalls, decided on prices and made their own posters and labels.

Head of School Vanessa Dear said the idea behind the event is to teach children about money and gives them the opportunity to use a wide range of maths skills and creative skills.

“We held our second Entrepreneurs Fair this year after many of our pupils asked if we they could do it again even though it has not been their main topic for this term.

“We also ran a café for parents and held a raffle. Many families came to buy some Christmas bargains.”

Following on from last year’s success this year children from Reception to Year six all designed and made Christmas items to sell. Cards, wrapping paper, gift tags, decorations, Christmas wreaths and handmade chocolates were some of the craft items on sale.

Year Six pupils Aiden Povey said: “It was brilliant because we made lots of money and I think everyone was happy with what they bought,” while Year Two student Harvey Sutton added: “I liked it because there was a lot to buy. It was fun making the things and our class gets to keep the money.”
