This workshop is led by museums staff.
Students will learn the history of Leeds entrepreneur Benjamin Gott whose leadership skills and enterprising initiatives led him to become a millionaire. He built Armley Mills and developed it into being the largest woollen mill in the world!
During the workshop KS2 pupils apply their decision making and problem solving skills to form a textile business. Pupils will also find out about some of the processes needed to make woollen clothing and use their numeracy skills to discover whose business is the most cost efficient. Activities include weighing, counting, multiplying, charts, graphs and area.
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.
