Dunkirk Primary School

Madrono set up companies to make millions!

They may me young, yet Madrono class  has a great NOSE for business!

Given a whole afternoon and all of nature's bounties in the Discovery Garden, the year 4 children of Dunkirk Primary School showed that they could SNIFF out great business opportunities. They gathered into groups to form companies and then they had to seek out their favourite smelling plants in the Discovery garden to produce their own unique scents. Rosemary, Lavender, mint and many more plants were sought out in order to mix up the smells each group liked. They pulverised these with a pestle and mortar and when they were happy with their product, they stored it in test tubes. They added nature's colouring to create their final touches.

Finally they all had to think of an exotic name for their perfume or cologne, a marketing slogan and a name for their company. 

Take a look at the gallery of all their hard work. NEXT THEY MUST COST IT OUT AD PRODUCE ADVERTISEMENTS AND WORK OUT HOW MUCH MONEY THEY NEED TO MAKE.
