Trade Fair

P6 would like to thank Downshire Primary School for hosting  a Trade Fair in conjunction with 'Our World' Programme.  The children worked for a number of weeks with sixth year students participating in the Young Enterprise Scheme.  The children learned about importing and exporting and how countries need each other to trade with.  Children were able to learn about the differences in the finances of different countries and did this through practical activities as well as presentations.  Primary 6 made fantastic book marks to sell at the Trade Fair and they were completely sold out on the day.  One of our class was also so inspired by the talk at the Trade Fair that they have started selling their own fudge to friends and family.  You are never to young to start your own business!
