Blog Question

Your teacher has put you in charge of organising the end of term class party. You need to consider where this will take place, what food/drink will be available and what games/activities you might play. In your homework book, create a t-chart with the headings ‘Goods’ and ‘Services’. List the goods you would need to purchase and the services you need to hire for your party. E.g. Pizza would go under the ‘Goods’ heading and the delivery of the pizza would go under the ‘Services’ heading. Now create an invitation to invite your classmates to the party. Ensure it is presented attractively.
