THE REIGN OF LORD JORDAN BEGINS

 

THE APPRENTICE AND LORD JORDAN

The Apprentice is an opportunity in the Summer Term for Year 6 pupils to show us the other skills that we may not have seen through SATS or throughout the school so far.

It is also an opportunity to prepare them for Secondary School where the rules can be very different.

The children will work in teams using Lord Jordan’s money to try and make the most profit they can from their sales.

The whole thing will culminate in a Year 6 Apprentice Sale where they will get to show their entrepreneurial skills and then be followed by the “hiring and firing” day where one lucky winner will become Lord Jordan’s Apprentice for 2024.

During the summer term the children will undertake a range of tasks as individuals and teams working towards the Year 6 Apprentice Sale.

They will also be being watched in all other aspects of school life by Lord Jordan’s team as they move towards transition to secondary school.

Lord Jordan has a team of staff across the school at lunchtime, playtime before and after school and in the local community who all report back on what they see and hear.

 

Winning the Apprentice 

There are several categories that Year 6’s can win including the overall winner.

The Best Team will get a prize. To win this they will have to show good team work but ultimately the team who make the most money and spend the least amount of Lord Jordan’s money often win.

The “Surprise” award is giving to the Apprentice who just like it says surprises us with how they act and how they approach the competition. This is one of Lord Jordan’s favorite awards as he gets to see another side of children or a different confidence that they haven’t shown yet.

And then there is the overall Apprentice Winner who is the person who is the one who impresses Lord Jordan in all areas.

To win the Year 6 Apprentice is a huge thing and former winners have gone on to be Head Girl at Varndean or are at University studying Business and Finance.

 

Lord Jordan Positive Points

These will be giving for doing good learning and good behavior in school and out of school.

These will be added to and taken into consideration for the Apprentice Final.

There will also be weekly winners for this who will earn prizes and rewards.

Only children with Positive Points will be able to attend the Year 6 BBQ.

 

Lord Jordan Improvement Points

The opposite of good learning and good behavior is improvement.

Improvement Points will be added up and if they are too higher than Positive Points children will not be invited to take part in events. 

78 APPRENTICE HALF TERM TASKS

Things every budding Apprentice should do before they are 12 years old- or before the Apprentice Final.

Whilst Lord Jordan is aware you might not be able to do them all (unless you are mega amazing) he wants to see who can do the most over Half Term.

He will however need proof (if required)- which might be the final product or a photo.
