Thank you to all the parents, family members that have already volunteered to come into school to speak to the children about their professions. The children have really been enjoying learning about the different roles. We have already had visits from a Film Maker, Train Driver, Speech Therapist, Occupational Therapist and a Olympic, Mountain bike stunt rider!
It is our intention to plan further visits throughout the Autumn Term in order to inspire our pupils to think of the opportunities open to them. We hope that these talks will help to inspire the children, and to believe that anything is possible.
We had a police officer come in and I want to be a police officer when I grow up. – Oscar, Reception
The Occupational Therapist was interesting, I hadn’t heard of that before. We learnt about the occuptional needs of people and how to help them. – Jack Y5
I enjoyed the role play with the Occupational Therapist, I pretended I could only use one arm. It was good listening all about how they help people. I would like to help people when I grow up too. – Emily Y5
