PROGRESS! Everyone was excited to begin working on the product. We were all told what each team had to do. Everyone was given a job that they were happy with.
Designing the Product and finding materials We decided as a class on what beads we chose. We found them online and purchased them. We voted on which pattern our customers can buy.
Our Bracelets We have three types of bracelets, the multi- coloured, personalised and the rainbow bead bracelet. The rainbow and the personalised were very popular.
DESIGNING THE FLYERS AND LOGO! This is our logo for rainbowlicious bracelets. Natalia, who is a great artist designed the logo and we chose it because it represented our product the way we wanted it to. For our flyers, Hannah spent a lot of time creating the perfect flyer. She put in the right information to let people know about our product. Great job Hannah!
Posters & Blog OUR BLOG Three girls from our class, Laura, Anna and Olive, made a blog. They wrote about what we did so far, like Sandra visiting us, our groups and dragons den. Hannah and Ella recorded an ad for our bracelets which you can listen to on the blog!

Managing our money MONEY The finance team had the job of managing our money. The sales team collected it from our students and gave it to the finance team. The finance team then sorted and counted it.
