- Enterprise Project for Summer Fair
This is a great activity to get people from the community involved in supporting the school whilst, at the same time, supporting a sense of competition, cooperation and enterprise in the children. Pupils can be placed into groups, with each group given a budget (say £10, for example), to raise as much money at the Summer Fair using any initiative they can come up with – setting up a stall etc. Encourage the group to work enterprisingly, keeping a close eye on the budgets, working with parents, negotiating the best deal, working with local suppliers/shops etc. This project really gives the children a sense of achievement and purpose, being a sure-fire winner to keep them engaged.
