Raising entrepreneurs and school funds
A Trading Week or Enterprise Fair is a great way to encourage creativity and enterprise, as well as providing a valuable ‘real-life’ context for developing literacy and number skills.
Some important skills can be learned during a school Business Week. It’s possibly the first taste of ‘adult work’ that children have and it can really make them feel like they are contributing to the school in a way they never have before. A Trading Week can be a great end-of-term activity but you could carry out the same tasks during weekly lessons over a term, then round off the activities with a Traders’ Day Fair.
