Careers week has been terrific this week! We have been lucky enough to have visits from a midwife, a prison officer, various different engineers, a pharmacist, a producer, an actress, an opera singer and a pest control officer to name but a few!
Thank you to all our visitors for widening our children’s view of the world and what is available to them. Thanks also to the children who have listened so well and asked some very interesting questions. There are no limits to what you can do!
We also had a fantastic time problem solving this week in Maths. We worked systematically using all of our learnt calculation techniques to help plan a holiday to Australia so Miss Hallam can see her brother again and also a day trip to a theme park. We looked at salaries, earnings and outgoings and worked out how long it would take us to save up! We looked at flight times, best value and priced activities for different amounts of people. It was great fun and good to see everyone working so well in teams!
