Good morning year 9
I hope that you had a great weekend and are ready to impress.  Today you have the opportunity to complete P3 of the current unit - deadline was Wednesday 12th October so no one in the class is in a position to waste any time and you will be asked to work elsewhere (as per the sixth form exclusion rota) if you think that you have.


Learning Outcome:
Understand the CLASSIFICATION of businesses


Task:
In a SEPERATE article but within the same magazine EXPLAIN how businesses are CLASSIFIED INCLUDE a definition of each SECTOR and use local and national examples, facts and figures and articles in the news (P3)


Resources: 


Year 12 TA's that have achieved great success on this exact same course:
  • Mr T's PowerPoint presentation on the unit todate - great for P1 & P2
  • Business studiesonline - www.businesstudiesonline.co.uk  great for notes and theory on the topics we cover - why not try the theory notes, videos and activities available under BTEC First
  • Core text books - ask Mr T about the BTEC & GCSE books available
  • Articles in the news today which provide great examples of TWO of the THREE types of business sectors; Check out BMW Mini, REMPLOY, TG4S and ISS what sector can these news articles be used for ?
  • Writing template for P3
