There was excitement all around as Leamington School’s Room 8 students held a class “market day” last Thursday, using their desks to create stalls and sell homemade wares.
In the lead up to the entrepreneurial exercise, the year 3 and 4 children planned and created their own products using class dollars named “coggies”, which they had designed during maths.
Goods up for grabs included slime, pompom caterpillars, bead necklaces and a delicious range of cookies and slices.
The students sharpened their marketing skills by creating their own signage to attract customers to their stalls.
They earned “coggies” throughout the term from their teachers, Charlotte Green and Arie Paton, by making a difference in their classroom.
“It has been a great lesson around learning the value of money,” Charlotte said.
