Pupils at Calder Vale and Scorton Primary School used their business minds this week by turning their home grown produce into money.

The primary students set about cooking their glut of harvest goodies into delectable refreshments, which they then in turn sold for money for the school.

The children organised themselves into enterprise teams with marketing groups, production experts and packaging teams all of whom quickly set about making their business plan turn into a reality.

The children at Scorton made apple crumbles and apple sauce which they then sold at the end of the school day while pupils at Calder Vale made pumpkin soup and pumpkin pies for refreshments at the Church Harvest service.

And as well as raising funds the children were able to bring together their skills in maths, english, design technology, art, computing and science as well as some great teamwork throughout the day.
