Tasked with creating products to sell at their own stall in The Abbey grounds, as well as marketing their products to customers and keeping track of their profit and loss during the day, the Year 6 pupils raised £2000 for local charities.

Products included pet treats, painted stones, jars of baking ingredients, popcorn and fun slime, with prizes given out for best team work, most innovative product, fastest sales and best marketing campaign.

John Brett, Head of The Abbey at Woodbridge School, said: “Huge congratulations to the budding young businesspeople at The Abbey for their hard work and mature approach in understanding business and innovation, all whilst raising a brilliant amount of money for charity. The market day is a fun opportunity for young pupils to learn about all that’s involved in running a business, and it’s great to see pupils inspired with new skills and experiences that will benefit them in their future careers.”

Pupils of all ages at The Abbey will continue to learn about business with a new selection of autobiographies from successful entrepreneurs soon to be available in the library.
