De Vere Primary School is part of the Attain Academy Partnership and is a small rural school. They delivered the Hobbycraft project to their Year 5 class.

The Year 5 teacher said:

“The children loved the whole experience and were hugely motivated and engaged.”

This project helps the children to set-up a small craft business, and who better to lead the project than Hobbycraft.

The children made many craft items with help from Hobbycraft and learned about some new concepts.

“The process of getting children to understand the supply chain and how we calculate profit went very well”.

“We were delighted about how the children were drawing on so many areas of the curriculum to complete the whole cycle from branding to selling”

said the Headteacher.
