The children really enjoyed Careers Week, which ran from 6th-10th March this year. During the week, every year group had the opportunity to listen to volunteers who came in to speak to us about their career. These talks were extremely eye-opening and inspiring for the children, creating a lot of discussion and interest in a wide range of careers. Some examples of the variety of careers we were enlightened by included a radiologist, a wedding stylist, a police detective and a Houses of Parliament camera operator.
The children also had careers week projects to participate in in their class. KS1 enjoyed creating a digital book, using Book Creator, to show what they want to do when they grow up. The school loved hearing about these and seeing some examples in Friday’s assembly.
KS2 created an Adobe Express video, titled ‘A Day in the Life of…’ where they researched their chosen career, before writing a script, planning the video and then making it. We really enjoyed watching some of these in the assembly too!
