A village primary school was transformed into a hive of entrepreneurial activity when it taught its pupils about the world of business.

Children at Uphill Primary School took part in an enterprise week, where they learned about making and selling goods.

Pupils in each class formed their own companies to produce a range of products, including bird feeders, flower pots and pencil cases, and were supported by the North Somerset Enterprise and Technology College (NSETC) throughout the week.

A spokesman for the school, in Old Church Road, said: “Over the course of the week they had support from NSETC and a number of business speakers, giving them advice on how to be successful.

“The classes worked really hard to make their products and were very successful in making a profit.”
