P4 Enterprise

Last term Primary 4 raised money for their school trip to a chocolate shop by selling lots of chocolate goodies! We decided to do a Chocolate Tuck to fit in with the theme of our trip and novel study. We started by deciding what things we could make, and then made a list of ingredients. In groups we went out and made lots of different treats such as top hats, chocolate crispies and fruit kebabs. We used a lot of melted chocolate to make our treats but first we discussed the best way to melt it, and how long we thought it might take. We decided breaking the chocolate into smaller pieces would work best, and started off melting it for 1 minute. We loved watching the chocolate melting! Then, to sell our treats, we all had different jobs. We discussed what skills each job would need, and then decided what we thought we would be best at. When we were selling, we had to count up how much everything cost to get the total. Then we had to take the total cost away from how much money the other children gave us to work out how much change they got. Then we had to get the right coins from the till, which was sometimes the trickiest bit. After we had finished selling, we added up all the money we had raised and it came to £82. We had lots of fun and can’t wait to go our school trip! selling-tuck
