Year 5 have been taking part in a project called, ‘Higher Futures 4 U’. The children have been learning all about the opportunities that are available to them when they leave school. They can now name at least a hundred different jobs, know which jobs they can get straight from school and those which need some further or higher education and can talk about the pros and cons of going to university. The project has really helped the children to think about what they might like to do for a job in the future. As part of the project, we are also going on a visit to Salford University and a world of work visit to the BBC in Manchester. Once the children have completed these visits, there will be a ‘graduation’ ceremony at the Imperial War Museum North in July, complete with cap and gowns!
