Maryland Enterprise Projects
At Maryland enterprise is very important. We have encouraged our children to become entrepreneurs and take responsibility for a range of projects .
Our beloved chickens are still laying whopper size eggs. Some of our knowledgeable Eggsperts sell the eggs every Tuesday, outside the Junior Hall. All the money raised goes towards the upkeep of our regal girls.
We have used the experience of our chicken business to help us write persuasive letters to the main supermarkets, asking for investment. We had personal responses from the CEO’s of Sainsbury’s and Morrison’s. Asda made us their community project for the month and we were awarded with a donation from their customers.
We also eggs-plored the language of eggs to help us write a sales pitch. Which word do you like the best?
Some parents were not sure of the difference between a supermarket egg and our fresh, delicious ones. We wrote a sales pitch to explain to our customers why £2 was an absolute bargain for our 6 delicious eggs.(After all, it’s not often you get a blue egg!) Can you see them below? Which one do you think belongs to our girls?
During Autumn, we always help the Nature Club and harvest the abundant lavender our school has. The children then sold this as fragrant bags. Our classes smell very calming during harvesting and production time. The delicate bags are sold alongside the eggs, demand is always high. If you would like to find out more please ask at reception when these are available.
Year 2 have worked with John Lewis to set up a children’s Design Team called ‘Little Panel’. The children were asked to review various items such as toys, bedding and furniture for children. We were also asked to design a duvet cover. We appeared in the Evening Standard, the Daily Mail and other national newspapers.Kai’s design was chosen. If you visit the flagship John Lewis store in Stratford, you might be able to spot his designed duvet cover for sale.
