Dragon’s Den comes to HOHS!

Over the half term break, Miss Hopwood set the children in Year 5 a task to come up with a new whacky invention! Then last week, the children had to pitch their product to the class of ‘dragons’ and persuade them to invest.

Maisy kicked off with Maisy’s Magical Edible Pillow range, followed by Sam’s Fish and Chip Underwater Mask and Maxim’s Builder Bot robot. Up next we had Jennie’s Robo Desk, Sophie’s Robot Sharpener and Alex’s Zap Ball. Finishing off the presentations was Eva and her Energy Ball, Emma’s EMHDM (Emma’s Mechanical Hair Doing Machine) and Alexander’s Automerit Ball.

Miss Hopwood was extremely impressed with how much work the children had put in over the holiday and how well they performed when pitching and answering questions from the ‘dragons’. Plenty of Monopoly money was invested!

What a brilliant start to the half term ahead – well done Year 5.
