Site: Armley Mills
Numeracy, Enterprise Education, Literacy, PSHE
This workshop is led by museums staff.
Benjamin Gott built Armley Mills. His enterprising initiatives led him to become a millionaire. Could you be the next Mr Gott?
During the workshop pupils become young entrepreneurs to apply their decision making and numeracy skills to form a business. Activities include counting, multiplying, shapes, area and problem solving. Who’s business can make the most profit? Pupils will also find out about some of the processes needed to make woollen clothing in the past.
This workshop is ideal for enhancing team building and for promoting citizenship and enterprise.
Pupils will be split up into 4 groups, which we encourage teachers to do beforehand and have at least one adult with each group.
