Well this week has been all about Enterprise!  
At the beginning of the week we seemed to have recovered from the dreaded sickness bug, but then the end of the week arrived and it struck again causing our attendance to plummet yet again.

Fortunately though, the beginning of the week was the time when we were focussing on preparing our goods for the Enterprise afternoon.  This went really well – we worked really well in our teams to create 4 different hot chocolate cones – Santa, Mrs Clause, Elves (red and green hats) and Rudolf.  We used various different sweet treats to create our cones and were very pleased with the overall effects when we added googly eyes and red noses.  However we still had a number of cone bags left so we decided to make some smaller, less decorated cones with just hot chocolate and marshmallows in them.

Well, on Wednesday afternoon, after a delicious Christmas lunch, we set out to persuade and appeal to the various parents and friends to visit our class and buy our hot chocolate cones.  We worked so hard that we managed to sell our entire stock (all 75 of them) and take orders for a further 30!  This gave us a profit of over £50, although we do need to buy extra bags and hot chocolate powder to create the additional cones so do not have a final profit until Mrs Alford has decided how many cones she would actually like.

We hope everyone who bought a chocolate cone enjoys their hot chocolate (if they haven’t already done so) and would like to say thank you to you all for your support in our efforts.
Our Star of the Week this week goes to Lana for all her efforts alongside Katy to persuade people to visit our classroom. She explained clearly what we had produced and how we had designed the cones.  Well done and thank you to both girls.
We received a miserly 2 handshakes this week!
