Careers and Future's Week

.Futures and Careers Week. 

Recently we have been thinking about our futures and our aspirations. 

We were lucky enough to have some visitors in to talk about their jobs that they do day to day. It was very interesting learning all about the different careers people have and why they wanted to do that job. We asked lots of questions to them and learnt so much from such a variety of different careers.
