Pupils of all ages from Frodsham CE Primary School put their heads together to come up with money-making schemes when they took part in Enterprise Week.

A representative from Frodsham’s TSB branch kicked off the activities by talking to the children about the skills required to be successful entrepreneurs, such as problem-solving, working as part of a team and using initiative.

Each class was then presented with £20 by headteacher Lucy Kirby and challenged to design, make and sell their own product, with the aim of making a profit.

As well as learning how to make their money grow, pupils learnt to spend their money wisely.

The week finished with an enterprise fair, where children had the opportunity to sell their items to the rest of the school.

Year 5 were the winning class, having turned their £20 into £90.80.

Weaver Vale MP Graham Evans visited the school to congratulate the winners.

He said: “I was delighted to visit Frodsham CE Primary School for their Enterprise Week. Learning about how money works is incredibly important for all young people.

“I think that it is fantastic that Frodsham CE Primary School has such an innovative way of teaching the value of money, and I am certain from my visit that there are a number of pupils set to become budding entrepreneurs.”
