Building Each Other Up in Love and Learning

Year 5's 'Make £5 Grow'

Start saving those pennies and pounds as the Year 5s gear up towards their Entrepreneur's Day which is taking place on Friday, the 1st of April! In collaboration with FOSS's Easter Fair and Virgin Money's 'Make £5 Grow.' Our Year 5s are working hard behind the scenes to produce products and make money grow! ​

'Make £5 Grow' gives young people the experience of starting a small business with a little bit of help from Virgin Money. The programme gives pupils an insight into how business works and helps them to build skills for the future, such as team-working, problem solving, leadership, money management and creativity. Engaging, educational and great fun, it delivers key elements of the National Curriculum.

They will be wowing us with their products from 2:15 - 4:30pm on the school playground, and all profit will be proudly donated to our fantastic FOSS team and the continuous improvement of our incredible school. Anyone is welcome to attend - invite your neighbours, grandparents and friends and support our Year 5s!
