Enterprise: The Design Process

Enterprise: The Design Process

Students in year 5/6 have been participating in the Integrated Unit – Enterprise during Terms 3 and 4. The unit has taken them from learning about the lives of children in other countries, and the varying qualities of life some of these children experience, to researching and promoting a charity, and learning about designing, marketing and advertising a product. Students are currently preparing activities and making their own products to sell on our two Enterprise Market Days coming up at the end of Term. All profits will go to the six charities that the 5/6 students have chosen, which support children around the world who do not enjoy all of their basic rights.

Below are photos of some of our students with their ‘bookmark’ design prototypes, which they created when learning about the design process. All students started with a simple, ordinary bookmark, and followed the design process to come up with a new, creative product.

Here is a student’s bookmark that becomes a hover board.




This bookmark turns into a comfortable arm chair at the click of a button!




Here is a bookmark that has a hologram feature.




This bookmark has a delicious treat dispenser, perfect for those boring books that teachers make kids read.




Who needs an iphone, fitbit AND a bookmark when you can have all the features in one handy product? Enjoy finding out your heart rate while you shock yourself by seeing how many words you have read per minute!
