CHILDREN at a St Albans primary school recently delved into the world of business, proving they have what it takes when it comes to being a “dragon”.

The Wheatfields Junior School pupils were taking part in “dragons’ workshops”, based on the popular television show Dragons Den which features hopeful entrepreneurs.

They learned about budgets, market research, selling, marketing and advertising and the teams also had to make a sales pitch.

A spokeswoman for the school said that the event formed part of its enterprise week activities which encouraged children to develop business skills such as leadership, decision making, teamwork, creativity and problem solving.

Local business experts visited during the week to share their knowledge and support teams working on group enterprise projects.

Recently we, as a family (minus two of the kids), visited The Lodge RSPB reserve in Sandy, Bedfordshire. I had never been before, which is perhaps amiss of me as a birdwatcher as it is the headquarters of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds or RSPB and only 45 minutes drive from home.
