During the month of February and March, 5th Class were very busy with their JEP Programme.

Ferg Brown, owner of ‘Roasted Brown’, a local coffee roastery in Delgany, visited us to give a talk on what it is like to be an entrepreneur.

This was really enjoyable and we learned a lot about what is important when setting up and running your own business.

 

We completed some market research on what potential customers would like from our product.

We sent out surveys and asked for some helpful and creative suggestions.

These surveys took a long time to go through but it was well worth the hard work. From these results, we gathered essential information on what materials to buy and how many to make.

We were very excited as the materials for the production of our ‘Fabulous Frames’ began to arrive into our classroom!

 

 

 

 

It was no easy task sorting out all the scrabble letters into alphabetical order – but everyone on the team got stuck in!

we realised that ‘many hands make light work’ and that being part of a team can be a lot of fun.

 

 

This is our little family of Lego figures which will be included in the frames – I wonder which one will be your favourite?

 

 

 

All the pupils in our class have an assigned role. The different teams are: Design & Production, Sales, Marketing, Finance and Storytelling.

This is someone working really hard on preparing a Google Slide presentation for our ‘Showcase Day’.

We love using the Chrome Books. They come in useful for so many different assignments.

 

 

This is what our final product looks like.

We have them in stock now, ready to sell just as soon as school is open again.

Each one is unique and we would love for you to come and see them. The frames also come in wood and black.

We will be having our Showcase Day both in the classroom and the P.E. Hall.

 

We also take time to reflect on how the programme is going so far.

We need to give our feedback to the organisers of the JEP Programme when the programme has been completed.

We will keep you posted on our upcoming ‘Showcase Day’ as soon as our school has reopened.
