Letter 1 should be sent out to parents of all children in the class at the very start of the project. The children will be excited about the project and will inevitably talk about it at home. It is best to explain the project to parents as early as possible.
Letter 2 should be sent to parents following lesson 10. A copy of each child’s business plan should be included with the letter.
Letter 3 is aimed at all parents within the school. This should be sent out just before the businesses begin their sales. This allows parents to understand the project and provide their children with money to participate as consumers.
Letter 4 should be sent out part way through sales, if it is judged necessary by the class teacher.

Starter For Ten Enterprise Project
This is the full set of resources which make up the Starter For Ten project. <br /> <br /> 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. <br /> <br /> 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. <br /> <br /> 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. <br /> <br /> 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.
