Winter Wonderland Bazaar
Each Autumn the children at Essex Primary School take part in an Enterprise Week. This is a sustained creative project in which children design and make an item to sell at our bazaar, Winter Wonderland.
Winter Wonderland has proved to be a very popular event in our community, and provides an opportunity for children to make something for a real purpose. Alongside the development of their practical abilities, children are encouraged to consider the economics of the transactions, and practise their wider mathematical skills by counting, measuring, or calculating costs.
This year’s event was a huge success. Alongside the displays of our children’s handicrafts, visitors enjoyed games such as ‘Pin the Tail on Rudolph’ and hoopla, and our younger guests were thrilled to step inside Santa’s Grotto and receive a gift.
