Ways to Work
This year we were delighted to host our first ‘Ways To Work Day’ to engage our children thinking about the world of work. We were able to invite ten visitors into school who spent the day with the children talking and demonstrating what they do. The day is part of our ambitious curriculum to open doors to our children’s futures.
Visitors included a nurse, sustainable travel advisor, company director, cruise ship captain, midwife, communications and marketing manager, children’s counsellor, National Farmer’s Union and representatives of the armed forces. The visitors, from our parent group, were amazed by the children’s engagement, questions and responses.
We were pleased to be able to introduce the event to the school. The day gave the children a taste of different jobs but most importantly to encourage them to think about the importance of working hard at school and aspiring to do something they enjoy in the future. There was a brilliant buzz around the school and it was an engaging day for all.
Thank you so much to the parents who gave up their time to make this event a success.
All children in Key Stage 2 took part in an interactive STEM workshop from our friends at the Silverstone museum. The children were thoroughly engaged.
