Transition Fortnight

During the transition into Year 6, the Year 5 class demonstrated fantastic entrepreneurial skills when challenged to design and create a product to sell on carnival day. The children voted to sell ‘Mama’s Marshmallows’ (giant marshmallows covered in chocolate and a range of delicious sweet toppings) and sketched 3D designs as part of their preparation. Throughout the two weeks, the children worked as a team to determine how many marshmallows had to be sold and at what price, in order to make a profit. The final stage of enterprise week was to make and sell their chosen product. Year 5 set up a seamless production line to assemble and package the marshmallows, before selling out in the first hour of carnival day. A real success for Year 5!
