STEM Week - Worktree
Workstree in STEM Week
On the first day back after Easter, Year 6 were treated to a day of activities provided by Worktree (https://worktree.org/) who are a local group of volunteers providing careers talks and inspiration for young people. Our pupils took part in games and group sessions designed to open up their minds to the kind of jobs and careers which are there for them to aspire to. The Worktree volunteers introduced 4 guests who we then interviewed to try and find out what their job was and then we asked them questions about the roles they play in the organisations they work for. Tara, Principal Engineer from Network Rail was hugely inspiring and told us hilarious stories about things that have gone wrong in her career. Thank you also to Caroline, IT testing operator from Dominos who provided treats and pin badges for all the children.
