Phonic Farm met yesterday to confirm their product ideas and discuss the research they were asked to conduct.
The decision was made that they would progress with both animal biscuits and a children’s book which focuses on animals and phonics.
Names of suppliers, costs of producing biscuits and books as well as sales margins were flying around the room. The progress since last week was astounding – they’ve really got on a roll!
Lily, the HR manager, even came up with a concept for the book – Allie the Alligator has a cold ‘Aaah! Aaah! Choo!’and is going on a journey to discover the cure by meeting various animals along the way. Hopefully one of them will be able to help cure her cold!
With this book concept, the ideas for which cure each animal could have came very easily. Each member of the team were given two animals to develop a cure for and link into the story. We had everything from Billy the Bee curing the cold with Honey to Max the Mouse curing the cold with Cheese…who knows what will come for all the rest of them next week.
As the story has started to develop, Hannah and Lily have been given the task to combine these ideas into a finalised story. As they haven’t got long before the first trade fair in December, it will be quite a challenge, but the girls seem up for it and are very keen to get a product ready to sell.
Hannah has also been working hard on developing a logo for Phonic Farm – the logo below is what she has designed and alongside this, she has even come up with a strapline for the product ‘Learning through fun with Phonics’.
It is so great to see the progress the team have made, and I cannot wait to see what next week will bring. We may have a fully developed story which is ready to illustrate – who knows!
