Our Smoothie Enterprise Part 1

A few terms ago we were selling cakes and me and Dylan came up with an idea where we would sell juice using Dylan’s and my juice machines. Unfortunately it never happened as I wasn’t able to to bring mine and Dylan’s stopped working.

But now, a few terms later our topic is Enterprise and the whole school decided to sell juice or smoothies again. At first it was going to be juice we were selling but after a few days it changed into smoothies.

So the first thing we did was write down all the things we needed to do or know to make a good smoothie business in a mindmap and write out all the different jobs. Then we were each were put in our own job group.

Me (Clyde) and Betsy were put in administration for the beginning and Maggie, Tadghan and Ben were put in advertising. In administration we had to phone different food companies telling them about what we were doing and asking them if we could get any free fruit. We managed to get some fruit from the CO.OP and possibly from Breckenridge.

We also had to phone Stuart (the person who runs the tearoom) to see if we could set up our stall there and we phoned Eddie to see if we could visit and ask him questions about his Bluebell business.

Meanwhile everyone else was doing advertising, making posters for the sale.

The next day we were all doing a smoothie survey to see if people would like smoothies, to see what type of smoothie they would like and to see how much they would be prepared to pay and how much smoothie they would want.

We all asked around seeing what people liked and what they disliked. In the end we added up all the answers and decided on what fruit we would use.

Paleontologists came to Eigg Primary

Paleontologists find fossils.  They dig in the ground and rocks to find left over Dinosaurs.  We had a visit from some paleontologists at Eigg Primary.  They were called Elsa, Paige, Dr Steve, Mark, and Tom. We learned a lot about Dinosaurs.

Most of the time Dinosaurs are just bones but sometimes, very rarely, paleontologists find Dinosaurs skin too.

Dinosaurs lived between 230 and 65 million years ago.  Dinosaurs live on the land.  Plesiosaurs live in the sea. Pterosaurs can fly.  Some of them are very big.  The biggest dinosaur is called Argentinasarus they found it in Argentina.  Microraptor is one the smallest Dinosaurs.

The paleontologists brought fossils with them.  They found fossils here on Eigg and we think they took them back to Edinburgh to give to a museum

Tadghan’s favourite is the Argentinasarus and Velociraptor.

Ben’s favourite is the Ornithomimus and Microraptor.
