There are three areas which I am passionate about promoting in Primary Schools: outdoor learning for all years, physical activity as an integral part of life and learning, and interdisciplinary learning. I believe that when learning is linked across the curriculum in a real-world context, it makes sense to learners.

This is the fourth lesson in a series of fourteen which make up the Starter For Ten project. Starter For Ten is a whole term, cross-curricular project for upper primary classes. A series of lessons provide the class with the knowledge and skills they need to start their own businesses in small groups. Groups are loaned £10 to start their business with the businesses running for four weeks after around six weeks learning and preparation.

Starter For Ten provides a highly motivating, real world context for learning with pupils taking full responsibility for their businesses. The pupils are also responsible for making key decisions including what to spend any profit on and whether to act as philanthropists and opt to donate a proportion of their income to charity.

The full project covers a number of curriculum areas: literacy, numeracy, health and wellbeing, religious and moral education, social studies and technologies. All lessons are fully linked to the Scottish Curriculum For Excellence.

Each of the fourteen lessons includes a lesson plan, a PowerPoint presentation and any worksheets or other resources required. Lesson plans include learning objectives, suggestions for differentiation, a starter activity, a main lesson, a plenary activity, suggestions for further development, opportunities for display, and relevant second level Curriculum For Excellence experiences and outcomes.

During this lesson the class will discuss the constraints which the businesses will operate under. Each business will consider their customer base and the likelihood of their ideas making a profit. They will then choose the business idea which they want to run and present their idea to the rest of the class. Each group will then write a business outline which they will present to the Head Teacher in order to be granted permission to operate.

1. I can talk and listen within my group to agree on a business idea.
2. I can talk and listen within my group to write a Business Outline and present it confidently to the Head Teacher.
