The second half of the term has been busy as usual!! We began by designing our products for the Financial Fortnight Fayre and after some great presentations to the' Eagles', it was decided that the Calon group won with their welsh bookmark idea. After the presentations, we set about making advertising posters and creating our product. We made 70 bookmarks using different welsh designs and they were costed at £1.00 each.
During the fayre we sold 60 bookmarks. That meant a good profit for us and we will decide how to spend the profit in the future.
We enjoyed the process of creating,costing and making and the rest of the school really embraced the welsh theme which was great!!
