Year six pupils created a business in an enterprise project shortly before the school holidays.

In the Yattonbury event, Yatton Junior School students designed activities, games and services for fellow pupils or parents to enjoy. A fudge stall, football penalty shootout and more was organised after the children carried out market research into what would work best.

In total, 19 activities were arranged and the school provided the pupils with a £100 loan, which they managed to make a £500 profit on.

The money was put towards hiring inflatables for the Yattonbury overnight camp.
