We were delighted to welcome Lea Hampton back to our school for a second year. Lea came in thanks to funding from the 'National Careers Week' to spend time with children from both KS1 and 2.
Lea brought with her a careers box to share with the children. The box contained costumes, props & profile cards that supported different roles within the Housing Industry. The roles included a mix of employed and self employed roles, challenging stereotyping. The children in the different year groups enjoyed the different activities they were presented with.
Lea has left the box in school for two weeks to allow the children time to enjoy trying to work in the different jobs through role play and reading the scenario cards. We will be in touch with Lea to tell her how we used the box and we will be welcoming more visitors linked to 'National Careers Week' in the near future.
