The whole of Year 4 have been busy making their very own, beautiful smelling, posy bags to sell at our Christmas fair this coming Tuesday!
This relates to the topic that they have been learning about this term, the plague of 1665-1666 and the village of Eyam. People would carry posies in their pockets, they believed that if you carried flowers, the smell of the flowers would overpower the germs and keep them safe from catching the horrible disease.
Their enterprising skills were also put to the test when the children had to work out how much money it had cost them to pay for the materials needed to make the posy bags. Then they had to calculate how many bags they had made and divide it by the original outlay amount. This gave them a price per posy bag. Next followed a discussion about how we, as a year group, could make some profit from the sale of the posy bags for our school, and a price was agreed!
We really hope you can come to our Christmas fair and buy some of our gorgeous posy bags, you won’t regret it they smell beautiful!
Take a look at our entrepreneurs in action.
