Spennymoor pupils run own city

Pupils from Pelton Primary School in County Durham are running their own "city" for the day.

They elect their own mayor, apply for jobs in the shops and bank, and decide rules for citizens.

The Enterprise City concept started in the USA and the children in Spennymoor are the first to do it in the UK.
