Pupils from Manorbier Church in Wales VC School and Fenton Community Primary School in Haverfordwest are learning valuable lessons in enterprise, leadership, resilience and communication thanks to a new partnership between 2B Enterprising and Pembroke Dock-based Ledwood Mechanical Engineering.  

41 Year 2 pupils from Fenton Community Primary School are taking part in ‘The Bumbles of Honeywood’ programme along with all 25 children from Manorbier Church in Wales VC School. They learnt about the importance of networking including how to introduce themselves with confidence in the first of three separate lessons.

Jayne Brewer, Chief Executive of 2B Enterprising said: “We partner businesses with education to help bring enterprise skills to life in the classroom. ‘The Bumbles of Honeywood’ is a series of creative and thought provoking books that transport our readers to the enterprising world of the Bumble Family – sharing valuable lessons learnt through their journeys and challenges with their friends in Honeywood. These storybooks are accompanied by physical and digital resources for primary school teachers to support the development of enterprise skills in the classroom. 

“Pupils from over 200 primary schools across England and Wales are currently taking part in the programme and we’ve had a wonderful response from businesses  like Ledwood who have chosen to partner with their local school.

“We want to inspire the next generation of ambitious, healthy, ethical and enterprising citizens who confidently make decisions, communicate effectively and contribute positively to their community. Ledwood’s support is helping us to make a real difference here in Pembrokeshire.”

Ms McSweeney, Deputy Head of Fenton Community Primary School said: “We are working hard to provide the best teaching and learning experiences for our pupils. We’re very grateful to Ledwood for helping us to access The Bumbles of Honeywood programme.  It’s so important that we find innovative ways to inspire young minds and develop the life skills of our pupils so that they can reach their full potential.”

Mark Davies of Ledwood Mechanical Engineering added: “We are proud to be able to offer young people an insight in to our world and to help bring enterprise to life. Today’s school children are our future workforce so it is great to see them learning key skills at such an early age, all of which will help to prepare them for the world of work.”
