Aspirations Day happened today and it was brilliant. It began with an assembly looking at what makes a good life and considering what the children might like to do as they grow older. This turned into a brilliant discussion across the school. We then took it in turns to meet a collection of people from a wide variety of different careers. We welcomed doctors, chefs, solicitors, sports people, life coaches, planners, training and development managers, charity workers and nutritionists. Wow!
Comments from the visitors so far are, "What an absolute pleasure spending time with your students. Such wonderful young people!"
"What a great experience - thank you for inviting me! What interested, friendly and polite children and what a pleasure to talk to them about their hopes and plans. They were a credit to you and your teaching team!"
The children learnt so much, from Early Years to Year Six! Some of the children in EYFS have already decided what they would like to be:
Abdul - a bee keeper
Margo - a zoo keeper
Layan - an artist
Nellie - a teacher
Dione - a ballerina
Peach - a doctor
Isabelle - a bunny vet
Orsielie - a firefighter
Harley-River - a doctor
Amazing! We will add more photographs as they keep on coming!
It was a truly inspiring day and we hope it will encourage our children to be aspirational for their futures!
