Tesco helps more than a little!

Posted in: Education, Other

Earlier this month at their gigantic grocery depot in Daventry, Tesco hosted a wonderful workshop on Business on the Move for local primary schools drawn from Coventry, Rugby and Market Harborough.

In addition to learning how to play the game in different ways, the primary school teachers and support staff sampled some of the classroom resources which sponsors of Business on the Move have developed as follow-up activities , enabling Key Stage 2 pupils  to apply their classroom skills to realistic problems in the world of logistics.

With a chance to see a modern distribution facility in action and also take away three complimentary copies of Business on the Move too, participants’ comments speak for themselves:

Head Teacher of Barby CE Primary School:

“Super resource, especially given the website activities as back-up.  High quality resources with really rich learning opportunities. ‘Multi levels’ mean that differentiation for more/less able is possible very readily.”

 

Chair of Governance at Barby CE Primary School:

“An interesting tool that the children will enjoy learning about and through.”

Teaching Assistant  at Great Bowden Academy:

“Running small support groups, I felt this game is an ideal way to help pupils with turn taking, sharing and also life skills. With all the activities and interactive back up, this will be a wonderful building block to class learning. Thank you for this opportunity to introduce such a useful learning tool for our school.”

Teacher of Paddox Primary School

“A great game to engage young children in business.”

 

Learning support assistant at Earlsdon Primary School:

“An interesting real life approach to learning that will give children an exciting insight into the world of business and logistics.”

 

Teaching Assistant at Clifton upon Dunsmore:

“Can’t wait to see how the kids will have fun with it.”
