This week, we have been holding our first ever Imagineering Week. Each afternoon, the children from years 1-6 have been moving around school for lessons delivered by curriculum leaders. In these lessons, the focus has been on the skills needed to be a historian, geographer, scientist, artist, designer, programmer, linguist... we even had a 'philosopher' session! We have had some great feedback from the children, and reports from parents of children going home full of ideas, keen to become scientists or working on their design projects.
Another part of our 'Imagineering Week' was the Careers Fair, held in the hall on Wednesday morning. Members of our wider school community, including parents, carers, older siblings, a governor and a staff member's mum (!) came in to speak to the children about their jobs. We had a really good range of roles, including a vet, an electrician, a software engineer, a social worker, a physiotherapist, a masters student, an NHS data manager, a prison officer, a nutritionist, a translator and proofreader, a forensic scientist, a radiographer, an illustrator and graphic designer and a lawyer.
The children really enjoyed meeting and speaking to the visitors, and as ever, our visitors were impressed by how polite, articulate and sensible our children are. Thank you very much to all those able to come to school and contribute to the careers fair.
We hope the Imagineering Week and careers fair have given all our children lots of food for thought for the future!
