World of Work Days - STEM
In the first week of November, the whole school from Nursery to Year 6 took part in World of Work days. A huge range of volunteers visited the children from a wide range of careers including Marketing & Communication, Insurance, Construction, Environment Wardens, First Aid, Banking, Rail, RSPCA, Radiation Physics and Farming! Below is just some of what the children said they had learnt and enjoyed...
