Aspirations!

It’s that time of year again!

Each year I ask our Year 6 children to think about what they would like to do with their education.

We have a lovely conversation all about careers and their plans and we think about what we know about the adults around us and the jobs they do.

I then try to find people who do these jobs, or who have experience of these careers, to speak to our children. Answer their questions, talk about their journey and, possibly, inspire our children to aim high

This is year we are already planning our visitors. I have had the privilege of a fascinating chat with Year 6 – and they had some brilliant questions all about a wide range of careers.

Of course, you know what I am going to ask now…

We need you! More specifically, do you know anyone who is or are you..

  • an interior designer?
  • Working in computer game design…
  • A chef?
  • A small business owner..? (This was non-specific and was based on a discussion about how you would set up your own shop, or internet service)
  • Astronaut?
  • archaeologist

Or perhaps you know someone with an interesting career who has a story to tell?

If you can help us with this, please do get in touch!
