German carmaker Volkswagen has said it will invest $7bn (£4bn) in North America over the next five years as it looks to boost its sales in the region.

Analysts expect 2013 to be the best year for the US auto market since 2007, with total annual sales expected to reach nearly 15.6 million units.

If that figure is met, it would mark a strong recovery from 2009, when sales fell to 10.4 million.





Drive- our business was driven to do the best that we could for the money available. We used easily available resources to ensure success

Thinking Ahead- We calculated the risks of our business idea and brainstormed a way of how to defeat the obstacle in our path.

Determination- We were determined to be more successful than all of the other teams in our goal.

Seeing opportunities- We bargained when buying our ingredients and resources to get the best price available.


We made a profit of £20 which was our aim therefore our business was a success!!

Taking a calculated risk



Our butterbeer business was a success as we calculated the risks that could occur. If our business took off and we sld it outside of school the risks and rewards would be:



I think it would be worth the risks as even if it was a failure we could learn from our mistakes and improve in the future. Also it would be a great learning experience of business large scale.

Six thinking Hats




Does the Six thinking Hats theory actually help me to potentially improve my idea or come up with new ones? If yes, how? If no, why not?

I don’t think the Six thinking Hats theory works. some people are naturally creative and don’t need guidelines to help them be so. If you can’t think of something creative then this may be helpful. However I, and I’m sure many other, do not need the Six thinking Hats theory.

Thinking Hats- Watch Out!


Abigail Clapton

Watch Out! is an app that alerts people about oncoming traffic when crossing the road. Many people listen to music and become unaware about traffic when crossing the road. This app ‘bleeps’ to interrupt any form of music or radio, which does not stop until you are safely across the road.

This app was created from ‘blue-sky thinking’, which gave us the freedom to come up with what you want and developing them further if we wish to do so.
