World of Work
As part of our new World of Work project we have been encouraging the children to think about jobs they would like to do in the future leading to discussions around further education/training they need to fulfil these roles.
On Monday we had our very first for 2017 world of work speaker to talk to the Y6 children about their job to help the children understand the diverse opportunities there are out there for them. We were joined by Mrs Punton, who came to talk the class about her role as Facilities Manager. She explained to the class about the different challenges her job provided and the skills needed to carry out this role. The children enjoyed listening to Mrs Punton and asked her many questions about her role.
Newcastle University Safari
Y6W had fantastic time at Newcastle University. We took part in a University Safari which involved experiencing what it would be like to be a Student and explored the campus.
