As part of the Fiver Challenge Year 5 pupils Emily and Mia struck a deal with the Ice Cream Farm in Tattenhall last week.

Their business meeting was a result of a great letter written by Mia to the farm seeking an appointment to present their idea of the Ice Cream Farm selling a tropical sorbet for one day, with all proceeds going to the Fiver Challenge charities.

The Fiver Challenge, supported by Virgin Money, provides a highly interactive, fun way of introducing financial literacy, resilience and teamwork in learning for primary school pupils. Pupils have one month to set up a mini business and create a product or service they can then sell or deliver at a profit and engage with their local community.

This is a real achievement for the girls, who are both very grateful to the farm for their cooperation and support. Well done, girls!
