Year 6 Money Making Project June 28, 2010

Filed under: School — year6charlestown @ 7:21 pm

Year 6 have been very busy with a new project.  We have split into three groups with one objective….to make as much money as we can!  We’ll keep you posted on the things we have been up to and how much money we have managed to make each week.  We are hoping to spend the money we make on lots of treats after working so hard all year.


This week we have split into 3 groups.  One group led by Mrs Laughton, one group led by Mrs Taylor and one group led by Mrs Batty.  Each group chose project leaders and names for their groups.  Mrs Laughton’s group is called Fortune Funds, Mrs Taylor’s group is called Taylor and Co. Enterprises and Mrs Batty’s group is called Cash Run.  Mrs Laughton’s group made some money running a competition where people had to guess the score of the England v.s Algeria match, Mrs Taylor’s group made some money selling chocolate brownies and Mrs Batty’s group had a go at washing cars.

At the end of week 1 Fortune funds made £30.31, Taylor & Co. Enterprises made £26.00 and Cash run made £38.50


After week 1 each group have really got the money-making bug.  Mrs Laughton has been working hard to get lots of prizes for a grand raffle……a meat hamper, a carvery for two and is currently in talks with subway!  Taylor & Co. also have two raffle on the go with prizes like a make-over at Harvey Nichols and an off-road driving experience at a castle in Crewe.  Cash Run have been very busy, selling toast and ice pops at break times, a guess how many sweets in the jar competition and a football card.

At the end of week 2, Fortune funds made £38.61, Taylor & Co. Enterprises has made £108.57 and Cash Run has made £108.17  It’s very close between Taylor & Co. Enterprises and Cash Run!


Things are hotting up this week, so far Lauren’s Dad has kindly made a cake for the Cash Run team and they are doing ‘Guess the weight of the cake’, they have also had a go at baking jam tarts and are planning a mini toy sale plus a spot the ball competition.  Fortune Funds have done really well with their sales of crumpets and chocolate rice crispy cakes and Taylor & Co. has a successful book sale as well as a name the teddy competition.  Now Mr. Gauld has helped us with making our spreadsheets so we can keep a good track of our finances.  Please let us know if you have any good money-making ideas!

    This has been an exciting new project and its been really good to see how sensible Year 6 have been, both in the way they move around the school and the way that they have organised themselves. I have also been impressed with the quality of some of the money making ideas. Well done Year 6 and keep it up!
